Kiribati on Path to Transform Data Protection and Governance
TAGS

The National Statistics Office of Kiribati, in partnership with the Office of Civil Registration, aims to integrate multiple sets of health and civil registration data to create a complete source of population data. The team has developed a Draft Data Protection Policy and terms of reference for a new data governance mechanism. The policy will not only ensure the security of this data in Kiribati but also provide a model for other countries seeking to include data protection measures in their legal frameworks. 

Further information is available in the latest edition of The Data Digest, a quarterly Data for Health Newsletter.
