The GIRL Center recognizes that Open Data is one of the most powerful ways to maximize the world’s investments in adolescent girls and ensure that programs and policies designed to keep them healthy and well are informed by scientific evidence. Open Data ensures that research is transparent and accessible and helps accelerate evidence-based solutions that have meaningful impact.
The GIRL Center is developing a “Data Hub” where researchers, funders, academic institutions and others can share and access data on adolescents and young people. The Data Hub will serve as an important resource to enable the global community to build upon evidence-based research and ideas immediately and help support a more collaborative research environment through sharing and transparency. Currently, the Data Hub is curating the Council’s data on approximately 200,000 adolescents and young people. Our hope is to collaborate and partner with others to include additional data from organizations working on girl-centered research and programs.
