Who we are

We are a group of practitioners and academics who contributed to The Palgrave Handbook of Global Health Data Methods for Policy and Practice.

Our goal is to assist students, practitioners, policymakers and the general public understand how data are collected, analysed and disseminated to improve global health.

We created the website to complement the book and to provide useful links to additional information and websites. We will update the content as resources permit. We welcome suggestions about materials we can add to the site.


We publish below the “Front Matter” for the book. The list of contributors is on page xxvii.



We thank the University of California San Francisco for granting the Edward A. Dickson Emerita Professorship Award to co-editor Sarah Macfarlane for development of this website.
