Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative

Today, approximately half of all deaths in the world go unrecorded; accordingly, health policy decisions are often based on inadequate information. Data for Health, co-funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies-and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, partners with low- and middle-income countries to improve public health data and use of data for policymaking. The Initiative focuses on four major areas: civil registration and vital statistics; data use for policy making; Population-Based Cancer Registries; non-communicable disease risk factor surveys. Collaborating institutions in the Initiative are: Vital Strategies, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and CDC Foundation, Global Health Advocacy Incubator, The Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, United Nations Economic Commission for Africa, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific, Pan American Health Organization and the World Health Organization.
