Infectious Disease Data Observery Data Repository

Infectious Disease Data Observery . n.d.;

IDDO promotes data reuse to generate new evidence that improves health and understanding of the diseases we focus on. Access to data held in the IDDO data repository can be requested by following a simple process.

When researchers, organisations and clinicians contribute data to IDDO, they are asked to stipulate how they would like applications for reuse of their data to be reviewed, including allowing requests for data access to be decided by an independent Data Access Committee (DAC).

The independent DAC is overseen by TDR, the Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Disease, hosted by WHO, and is responsible for agreeing the Data Access Guidelines, the principles under which access decisions are made, and reviewing applications to access data.
