IDDO’s animation highlights the benefits of data sharing

8 September 2016

The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory's new film shows the potential impact of data sharing on infectious diseases research.

IDDO was created to maximise the power of available data on infectious diseases.

Data sharing improves the quality of research and enables scientists to generate reliable evidence and innovative resources that can inform policy and yield timely responses to the major challenges of emerging and neglected infections. It can help the community to determine the optimal strategy for surveillance and drug trials, understand the emergence of pathogens and resistance, and prolong the efficacy of available treatments.

Learn more about the benefits and the dynamics of data sharing in our new animation.
