Global Alliance for Genomic Health 

News Content

A consortium of 69 leading healthcare, research and disease advocacy organisations from across the world, including the National Institute for Health Research are joining together to form an international alliance dedicated to enabling secure sharing of genomic and clinical data. On 5 June, the consortium, which is calling itself the ‘global alliance’, announced that the organization will develop standards and policies to encourage data-sharing of a person’s DNA sequence combined with clinical information. The alliance also hopes to tackle privacy and informed-consent issues that prevent researchers from sharing data, and plans to create a network of cloud-computing platforms and analysis tools in an effort to provide access to the shared data.
