Providing equitable and secure access to data
Good governance of data relies on an interlocking framework of ethics, legal agreements and regulatory compliance. As a global repository, IDDO is guided by principles of equity and responsible use of data. Through providing data infrastructure to enable research, IDDO looks to ensure that access to the benefits of data sharing and the direction of resulting research incorporate the knowledge and active participation of low- and middle-income countries (LMIC) partners. This approach rests in turn on achieving best practice in accordance with global regulatory compliance.
