Migration Data Portal (IOM – International Organization for Migration)
The Portal aims to serve as a unique access point to timely, comprehensive migration statistics and reliable information about migration data globally. The site is designed to help policy makers, national statistics officers, journalists and the general public interested in the field of migration to navigate the increasingly complex landscape of international migration data, currently scattered across different organisations and agencies.

Data Innovation Directory (IOM)
The International Organization for Migration (IOM) has launched a new data platform to better understand migration and human mobility in times of crisis through new data sources and methodologies such as satellite imagery, artificial intelligence and machine learning, social media and mobile phone data. The Data Innovation Directory (DID), which is part of IOM’s Global Migration Data Portal, features more than 50 projects and initiatives that use these data sources to shed light on the implications for mobility during global crises, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Global Health Facilities Database
(WHO – World Health Organization)
Every country faces the challenging task of keeping its people healthy.  From delivering primary care in rural communities and urban centers, to addressing health crises like the COVID-19 pandemic, each country needs accurate and reliable data to ensure its population knows where to go for the care they need.
A well-maintained health facilities master list helps countries leverage data to meet their public health needs. Keeping that data current is paramount for countries to make informed public-health decisions, monitor ongoing health concerns, and accelerate response times in emergency situations.
For these reasons, the World Health Organization is announcing a new Global Health Facilities Database – a timely and essential resource to locate and provide access to healthcare services for all populations. As a global public good, this repository will standardize the master lists of local and regional health facilities into an open database.  Doing so will strengthen country’s technical capacity at all levels, improve data interoperability across information systems, support the provision of universal health coverage, and accelerate progress toward the triple billion targets
