The Health DATA (Data. Advocacy. Training. Assistance.) Program exists to make data easy and understandable to a wide range of health advocates through trainings, workshops and technical assistance. Through in-person and on-line trainings, our goal is to improve the capacity of health experts and advocates to find, understand and present credible data in their programmatic and policy development work.

What We Do
Health DATA conducts training courses, in-person and online workshops, and technical assistance sessions to build knowledge and skills to access, understand, and apply data to program planning and advocacy. Our in-person and online training can be tailored to any skill level as well as to specific health issues.
