Data sources

We make datasets and our sources freely available so that policymakers have the evidence they need to make informed decisions about how to allocate resources to best improve population health.

Global Health Data Exchange (GHDx)

The GHDx is a data catalog created and supported by our organization.

  • It is the central source for all our primary and secondary data records and datasets.
  • It was created as a dedicated place for anyone interested in global health and demography to quickly find and share information about data along with actual datasets.
