Call for Participants – GSDM Initiative of “Data Governance for UHC”
Dear GSDM students,
We have carried on the project of Data Governance for Universal Health Coverage (UHC) as a GSDM Initiative in FY 2017. In this project, we collect the information on the current status of data governance and data analysis regarding health administration data, such as demographic and health statistics, health insurance claim data, and so on. A few countries and governments are doing well in terms of handling data and using data for policy research, and we will be able to learn some lessons from their experiences. For that purpose, we have a plan to visit The Korean National Health Insurance Service (NHIS) and Korean Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) in March. If you wish to participate in this visit, please apply for it by 09:00 AM on Tuesday, February 13. We look forward to your applications.
