The Health Data Collaborative (HDC) is an informal network of over 200 partner organisations and over 800 members (September 2022) from public and private sectors and 7 diverse constituencies: i) country governments; ii) civil society; iii) private sector; iv) academia and technical networks; v) global health initiatives; vi) donors and philanthropic foundations; and vii) multilateral and inter-governmental organisations.
HDC partners close data gaps and reduce fragmentation of approaches by strengthening country data and digital health information systems to accelerate progress towards the health-related SDG goals. Partners align resources (technical, financial and political) with country-led and identified data and digital priorities, support adapting global public goods to local contexts, support the HDC technical working groups and share good practices for data and digital governance through peer learning.
Why partner with HDC?
Complex data and digital challenges require diverse viewpoints and multi-partner resources to come up with the best solutions. One partner does not have all the resources to address all data and digital challenges, so diversity (of constituency, geography, socio economic status and gender) lie at the heart of the HDC.
The potential added value for partners by joining the HDC include HDC collaborative – the potential ‘added value’ of the HDC:
- Leverage resources with others: partners can leverage technical, financial and political resources from a wide range of stakeholders
- Country focus
- Technical area of interest
- Knowledge brokering
Our diverse range of partners allows us to leverage world-class expertise, tools, technologies and partnerships to serve countries’ data needs. By working with over 60 partners we have, together, the power to combine resources, expertise, reach, and capacities in areas that are common challenges in many countries and that cut across our partners’ mandates to support governments around the world in addressing those challenges.
Focused on country-impact and committed to “data for action”, our partnerships approach is designed to work alongside countries to improve the availability, quality and use of data for local decision-making and tracking progress toward the health-related SDGs.
