Digitised data production

Harvesting the benefits from digitised data

Digitised data production and analysis promises to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of aid programmes dramatically. Sharing this data responsibly could enhance research and analysis of the needs of people in crises, improving support for them. But data collection can undermine privacy. For people caught in conflict or disasters, violations of privacy very easily become violations of personal security. These are high stakes.

Our team mixes medical and non-medical innovators, each with significant MSF field experience often in senior coordination roles. We have an excellent vantage point to help you find ways to reap the benefits and minimise the risks of producing digitised data in your MSF field projects and sharing that data both inside and outside the MSF movement. Our base in Tokyo is an enormous asset for this. Japan is a leader in responsible data sharing and supports various worldwide initiatives to promote it.
