WHO’s Global Health Observatory furthering open access to data

The World Health Organization is currently working towards expanding their collection of public access data under their Global Health Observatory website. From WHO:

“Improvements are under way at WHO’s online Global Health Observatory (GHO) making health data easier to find and use for specialists such as statisticians, epidemiologists, economists and public health researchers as well as anyone with an interest in global health.

The GHO is the ‘one-stop shop’ for the world’s largest and most comprehensive collection of up-to-date health data. It provides free public access through a single internet page to a vast reservoir of data and analyses on the situation and trends for global health priorities, integrating around 1000 health indicators.”
