When researchers, organisations and clinicians contribute data to IDDO, they are asked to stipulate the level of access others will have to their data, including allowing requests for data access (re-use) to be decided by an independent Data Access Committee (DAC).
The DACs are responsible for agreeing the platform’s Data Access Guidelines, the principles under which access decisions are made, and reviewing Data Access Applications.
More information about the terms under which data can be accessed, eligibility of data requestors, and the application process can be found on each theme’s accessing data page below.
IDDO has two Data Access Committees, the IDDO DAC and the Ebola DAC. View a visual summary of the IDDO Data Access Journey.
