The Data Sharing Principles were developed by the GloPID-R Data Sharing Working Group as the first step in the framework to be used in building a data sharing system. These principles have been developed to underpin the timely sharing of data by all stakeholders, which an effective and efficient response to a public health emergency (PHE) demands.
When stakeholders commit to sharing data, they leverage limited resources and reduce duplication of work and the delay between identification of a PHE and the mounting of an effective coordinated response strategy. This overall approach to data sharing will better prepare the world for future disease outbreaks and public health emergencies.
