Bloomberg Philanthropies | Data for Health Portal

The Data for Health (D4H) Initiative, co-funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Australian government, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, helps low- and middle-income countries collect better public health data. D4H works with governments to strengthen and standardize birth and death records and to better inform policy-making and improve public health outcomes. This resource library contains 300+ documents and materials generated through the Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative.


D4H primarily works on four major domains: cancer registries; civil registration and vital statistics (CRVS); data impact; and non-communicable diseases (NCDs). Click on a domain to view associated resources.
