IDDO Data Access Committee

The IDDO Data Access Committee (DAC) makes decisions on access to data in the research themes of malaria (WWARN), visceral leishmaniasis, schistosomiasis/STH and Chagas. Decisions are made on behalf of those data contributors who have elected DAC permission, and access is managed according to the Data Access Guidelines.

The DAC is an independent committee overseen by the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Disease (TDR), which is hosted at the World Health Organization (WHO). Membership of the DAC is from across the fields of Global Health and members are appointed through an open nominations process. If you would like to nominate someone, please contact us at
