The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory brings together members of the global infectious disease community to collaborate in the generation, analysis and application of data to improve outcomes for patients. IDDO’s vision is for effective control and treatment of infectious diseases affecting the most vulnerable populations.

The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory, based in the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health at the University of Oxford, works with researchers around the world to tackle infectious diseases including Ebola, malaria, and visceral leishmaniasis. Sharing data between researchers and clinicians worldwide is an increasingly important aspect of combating disease outbreaks and fighting back against resistance.

To mark World Malaria Day, IDDO Director Professor Philippe Guérin explains the need to maintain our focus on the elimination of malaria.


IDDO assembles clinical, laboratory and epidemiological data on a collaborative platform to be shared with the research and humanitarian communities. The data is analysed to generate reliable evidence and innovative resources that enable a research-driven response to the major challenges of emerging and neglected infections. Focus areas include Ebola, malaria, visceral leishmaniasis and medicine quality.
