Discover the World’s Health Data
Peter Speyer is Director of Data Development at the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. He is responsible for obtaining and managing the data that fuel IHME’s research in global and public health and establishes relationships with data providers and statistics offices in governments, international organizations, NGOs and other organizations around the world.
To make information about these data more widely available, Peter directed the development and implementation of the Global Health Data Exchange (GHDx), IHME’s public catalog and repository of health-related data. Peter and his team also develop innovative data visualizations that facilitate and encourage the use of data for policy and decision making; interactive features make IHME’s comprehensive and detailed data readily accessible and useful for diverse audiences ranging from researchers and policy makers to public health professionals and the private sector.
