Health & Covid 19
This module covers civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS), COVID-19 testing, and provision of primary health care, all of which create substantial data.
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of reliable, accessible, and trusted health data to enable coordinated action. The governance and reusability of data in the health sector must combine respect for individual privacy rights with a focus on population and patient health. Data can be used to support access to healthcare across the many different healthcare systems of the world.
The health & COVID-19 module draws on both primary indicators and secondary data sources to assess the availability of: vital statistics, healthcare system capacity data (secondary); real-time healthcare system capacity data. This module also incorporates indicators specifically focused on COVID-19, which assess the availability of vaccination data and testing data (secondary).
The methodology and data collection processes of this first pilot edition of the Global Data Barometer will be assessed and reviewed for the next edition.
