Explore the Global Health Data Exchange

Does your research on population health or health policy require statistics and reports from other countries?  Are you curious about the state of health care in a particular part of the world?  Explore the  Global Health Data Exchange (GHDx) for the datasets or reports you are seeking.

The GHDx is a catalog of publicly-accessible data and records compiled by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington.   The database describes and provides links to the data from government bodies, the World Health Organization, and other sources.  You may search the database by keyword, or browse by geographic area or type of report.

The Institute also provides interactive data visualization tools:

  • Preset interactive maps cover topics such as life expectancy, causes of death, diabetes prevalence, maternal mortality and more.
  • A GIS tool allows you to create a custom visualization.
