About Global Health Facts
Global Health Facts, a project of the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, provides free, up-to-date and easy-to-access data by country on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other key health and socio-economic indicators. Global Health Facts is comprised of more than 100 indicators and provides users with the ability to map, rank, and download the data for custom analyses. Data are obtained from a variety of public and private sources. In an effort to provide consistency across countries, data are primarily obtained from global or cross-national entities, vs. countries specifically, and therefore may not represent the most recent year available at the country level. Global Health Facts is updated as new data become available; the update schedule varies from indicator to indicator. If you have questions about data use or if your organization would like to link to Global Health Facts please contact us.
