The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO) assembles clinical, laboratory and epidemiological data on a collaborative platform to be shared with the research and humanitarian communities. The data are analysed to generate reliable evidence and innovative resources that enable research-driven responses to the major challenges of emerging and neglected infections.

VL Surveyor

Discover the first interactive online tool  that displays the details of visceral leishmaniasis (VL) clinical trials across geographic locations and time. 

Contributing Ebola data

All members of the research, health and humanitarian communities are invited to contribute data to the platform. By standardising and aggregating all available Ebola data we can address knowledge gaps in order to improve patient outcomes and outbreak response.

Research themes

IDDO enables research-driven responses to major challenges of infectious diseases through development and management of data sharing platforms.

Tools and resources

IDDO is committed to providing practical tools and services to support the collection of disease characterisation data and develop quality evidence on optimal treatment and response to emerging infections.

Share data

If you work with clinical, laboratory or epidemiological data and want to share your research or access research data then you are welcome to sign up to the Observatory.

We have platforms for a range of diseases including emerging and neglected infections.

What is IDDO?

The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory (IDDO) is a researcher driven network which provides data platforms to capture, share and collaborate on infectious disease related data.

Using years of experience and extensive investment in data tools we provide platforms which are designed for effective data analysis and robust governance.
