The Health Data Collaborative is not a formal partnership. We operate with a light, nimble governance structure, based on a shared vision that by working together to strengthen country information systems, we can contribute meaningfully to better decision-making and better health.
Nor is the Health Data Collaborative a fund. It is not directly responsible for financing health information systems, but for bringing countries, donors and other partners together to make sure investments are made in the most efficient and effective way.
