Global Health Security (GHS) Tracking dataset

Description

The Global Health Security Tracking (GHS) dataset is a research effort led by Dr. Rebecca Katz and Dr. Ellie Graeden at the Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security. The dataset was developed to provide a shared resource to map the flow of disbursed funds for global health security. GHS Tracking allows both funders and recipients to identify gaps and prioritize future investments, and helps to highlight the ways in which funds can be allocated most effectively to have the greatest impact. The dataset and platform serve as a basis for mutual accountability within the global health security community, promoting public accounting, and providing an opportunity for countries, organizations, and other funders to showcase their successes and identify priorities for future investments.

GHS Tracking aggregates publicly reported financial disbursements from funders to recipients for activities related to global health security, from January 2014 and December 2022, reported in nominal U.S. dollars. This effort draws from a large number of data sources, each with varying reporting standards, methods of summarizing, and levels of metadata quality. To learn more, visit our methods documentation or read the attached Technical Appendix. To see how our team and other researchers have used the data, check out the publications here.

The GHS Tracking dataset can be explored, visualized, and downloaded from tracking.ghscosting.org. Data can also be accessed in CSV format on this page. In addition to the Technical Appendix, there are two data files available for download:

  • Funding distributed from 2014 – 2022 for each of the Joint External Evaluation (JEE) core capacities
  • Funding distributed from 2014 – 2022 for each of the WHO public health emergencies of international concern (PHEIC)

Funding is reported as the total amount received and disbursed by each stakeholder entity per year in nominal U.S. dollars. The data should not be used without special attention to the limitations.
