Data Catalogue

A collection of global and international data sources available to The Trinity Challenge participants.

There's A Wealth Of Data Available

The Trinity Challenge’s data catalogue is collation of a broad range of global and local data sources which could serve as meaningful inputs or starting points for The Challenge.

These are intended as examples of available open-source datasets and not as an exhaustive list of all possible datasets, and hence a first attempt to bring together critical datasets for global public health from a data landscape that has historically been fragmented and unstructured.
