Health Inequality Data Repository

More news about the topic

The Health Inequality Data Repository contains about 11 million points of disaggregated data—that is, data broken down by characteristics such as sex, age, place of residence, disability, economic status, and education. The more than 2000 indicators in the repository were selected as part of a systematic scoping exercise.

They pertain to current health and development priorities including the SDGs; COVID-19; reproductive, maternal, and child health; immunisation; HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria; adult health; nutrition; health care; burden of disease; environmental health; and other health determinants.

These data are a central requirement for monitoring inequalities between population groups, identifying situations of injustice, and informing the development of equity-sensitive policies and programmes.
