As the name suggests, the Health Data Collaborative is an inclusive partnership of international agencies, governments, philanthropies, donors and academics, with the common aim of improving health data. Countries are at the core of what we do, supported by donors, academics, UN agencies and civil society organizations.
The Health Data Collaborative is not a formal partnership. We operate with a light, nimble governance structure, based on a shared vision that by working together to strengthen country information systems, we can contribute meaningfully to better decision-making and better health.
Nor is the Health Data Collaborative a fund. It is not directly responsible for financing health information systems, but for bringing countries, donors and other partners together to make sure investments are made in the most efficient and effective way.
