What are some basic health data management precautions that all organizations should take in the COVID-19 response? What constitutes sensitive data generally and in the health sector specifically? What are some common types of sensitive data in the COVID-19 response? These are just some of the questions addressed in our new joint FAQ on Data Responsibility in the COVID-19 Response.

The members of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Sub-Group on Data Responsibility (co-led by the Centre for Humanitarian Data, IOM, and UNHCR) have developed this FAQ to support organizations and staff around the world working with data in the COVID-19 response. The ongoing response presents a range of challenges and opportunities around the safe, ethical, and effective management of data. This resource will be updated regularly as we receive additional questions and feedback.
