Accessing data

We are currently building a comprehensive data platform to host and share data on Ebola virus disease. The technical, governance and ethical framework of the Ebola Data Platform will ensure the protection of the rights and privacy of the individuals and communities from where the data originated.

The Ebola Data Platform is currently still under development, aiming for a planned launch in 2020, at which time a full data inventory will also be made available. For more information, please contact ebola@iddo.org.

All members of the research, health and humanitarian communities are invited to contribute data. We accept individual patient-level datasets collected as a part of clinical care and follow-up, laboratory services, public health response, epidemiological investigation, clinical trials, and observational research. If you are not sure whether your data are suitable for the platform, or if you have other data types that you would like to include, please contact us at ebola@iddo.org.
