Data for Health aims to help more than one billion people in 20 countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America live healthier, longer lives.
Bloomberg Philanthropies, in partnership with the Australian government, have launched Data for Health, a $100 million initiative that will enable 20 low- and middle-income countries to vastly improve public health data collection.
The Data for Health initiative seeks to provide governments, aid organizations, and public health leaders with tools and systems to better collect data – and use it to prioritize health challenges, develop policies, deploy resources, and measure success.
The CDC is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services, United States of America. As the nation’s health protection agency, CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats. To accomplish our mission, CDC conducts critical science and provides health information that protects our nation against expensive and dangerous health threats, and responds when these arise.
Vital Strategies brings global expertise to build large-scale health programs in the following functional areas: project management; strategic communication; research and evaluation; workforce development; policy advocacy; and surveillance and epidemiology.
The International Statistics Program leads CDC work in CRVS.
The GHAI provides legal review for Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Data for Health Initiative to improve public health data so that governments are equipped with the tools and systems to collect and use data to prioritize health challenges, develop policies, deploy resources and measure success.
Johns Hopkins is supporting the Bloomberg Initiative through research and development of tools and methods for gathering more accurate and timely information on non-communicable diseases through the use of mobile phone surveys. Currently NCD's are annually responsible for more global deaths than communicable diseases—with an increasing burden in low- and middle-income countries.
The World Health Organization, utilizing their expertise, will provide technical assistance to support existing risk factor surveys in order to provide gold-standard expertise to support mobile phone surveys.
