Launch of Global Health Data Exchange

Launched in March, the Global Health Data Exchange (GHDx) is a new data catalog for demographic, public health, and global health data. It was developed by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington to provide detailed information about datasets ranging from censuses and surveys to health records and vital statistics, globally.

The GHDx features powerful search tools and multiple ways to browse global health data. It also serves as a platform for data owners to share their data with the public.  HealthData.gov provides information about and direct access to US Government health data whereas GHDx is for global health data.
