Overcoming Barriers to Data Sharing in Public Health A Global Perspective
Sane, J. and Edelstein, M. (2015). Overcoming Barriers to Data Sharing in Public Health: A Global Perspective.
The authors report findings from interviews with high-level decision-makers, field epidemiologists, academics and individuals responsible for disease surveillance at the national level, in both high income and low-middle income countries. Participants described how data sharing is part of their usual work; they also shared input on barriers to data sharing they have encountered or are aware of and how they overcame them (during routine surveillance and public health emergencies).
