Great sources for global health data

On September 26, 2008, in geographic data, global health, research, by Karen Grepin

A recent posting on the Bianoah blog by Tristan, made me aware of a new and useful website for data on global health from the Kaiser Family Foundation. In addition to providing the standard sets of data on global health indicators, I was surprised to also see a whole section on funding sources of aid. Very cool. While data from these sites is still considerably less useful for those doing longitudinal studies, it is certainly a great place to start.

I also wanted to let other readers know of another website that has data and an interface that makes it particularly useful – the new UNdata site.

Check them out, they may come in handy one of these days….
