Data drives rapid response and informed decision making during public health emergencies. There is a need for timely and accurate collection, reporting and sharing of data with the research community, public health practitioners, clinicians and policy makers. Accurate and rapid availability of data will inform assessment of the severity, spread and impact of a pandemic to implement efficient and effective response strategies.

The Guidelines aim to help stakeholders follow best practices to maximise the efficiency of their work, and to act as a blueprint for future emergencies while the Recommendations assist policymakers and funders in maximising timely, quality data sharing and appropriate responses in health emergencies, particularly COVID-19.
