  5. Launch of the Data...

This week, the Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (Africa CDC) is hosting the launch meeting of the Data Science Without Borders Project, funded by Wellcome and coordinated by the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC). Along with the Turing Institute and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM), CODATA is one of the technical partners. We will be working with pathfinder institutions in Ethiopia (Armauer Hansen Research Institute (AHRI)), Sénégal (Institute for Health Research, Epidemiological Surveillance and Training (IRESSEF)) and Cameroon (Duoala General Hospital (DGH)). It’s an extremely promising project and I’m very excited that we’re involved. It builds on a number of years’ collaboration with APHRC through a series of ‘INSPIRE’ projects and the work of the WorldFAIR Project WP07 on Population Health. Our role will include the design and implementation of a Trusted Research Environment (TRE), a low code / no code analysis environment, connected to a visualizations capable INSPIRE SDMX (Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange).  More soon!
