The Health Inequality Data Repository from the World Health Organization (WHO) is a free, open-access selection of publicly available disaggregated data about health and indicators of health. It includes regional and continental data sets from 1950 to 2022, covering all world regions, from 16 sources on more than 2,000 indicators. As of November 2023, the available data set categories are Sustainable Development Goals; WHO Global Health Observatory; COVID-19; Reproductive, Maternal, and Child Health; Immunization; HIV, Tuberculosis, and Malaria; Adult Health; Health Care; Burden of Disease; Disability; Migration; Environmental Health; WHO General Programme of Work; and Beyond the Health Sector (Health Inequality Monitor 2023). The sources of the data sets include publicly available data from the WHO and numerous United Nations (UN) agencies, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Union, the US Agency for International Development (USAID), and more. In addition to the data sets, two software options are available. The Health Equity Assessment Toolkit (HEAT) allows users to view the data in various chart and graph formats, and HEAT Plus allows users to upload their own disaggregated data in addition to the available data sets. The Health Inequality Data Repository and its supporting software tools are housed within the Health Inequality Monitor section of the WHO website, and it has numerous educational options related to its resources and goals.
