Health Data Governance Summit
30 June, 2021 at 8:00 AM - 11:00 AM EDT
Improving evidence-based health outcomes depends on data that is available, timely, actionable and reliable. Health data needs to be collected, stored, shared transparently and analysed based on the foundations of strong data governance.
The momentum for health data being a Global Public Good requires: i) consensus building, ii) investment (technical, regulatory and policy), iii) implementation (training and capacity building), and iv) multi-sectoral partnerships that include citizen science. The World Health Organization and partners will build on this momentum for greater international collaboration on data governance by hosting a Health Data Governance summit.
UN Global Pulse is excited to participate in a panel discussion around the topic of Data as a global public good: landscape, challenges and making the case on 30th June from 8:00am-11:00am EDT.
