Supporting capacity and skills development for public health data research management in low- and medium income countries

Conducting research in public health is time-consuming and expensive. Ensuring that research data, along with its published findings, is made widely available to the research community leads to more discoveries and greater efficiency.

The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation commissioned the Open Knowledge Foundation and Frost & Sullivan to:

  • assess the current provision of skills for data management and analysis
  • identify current challenges and support gaps in research data management.
The report was completed in November 2013.
