We live in an age of digital communication, with high volume data streams being generated as people go through their daily lives. A wealth of health-related information is contained within these data, offering new possibilities to make quicker discoveries, undertake more efficient health research and implement new, more targeted and more equitable health policies.

At the Centre for Data and Statistical Science for Health, we aim to develop and apply state-of-the-art data and statistical science to address pressing problems in global health.
