What is the Global Alliance?
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) is an international coalition, formed to enable the sharing of genomic and clinical data. Genomic information offers great potential to inform the understanding of disease, but in order to learn it is often necessary to combine information across diseases, organizations, methods, and even countries. The members of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health are working together to create interoperable approaches to help unlock these potential advancements in medicine and science.
What is the Global Alliance doing?
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) has convened over 170 stakeholders from around the world, and formed four Working Groups to meet the challenge of creating a common framework for sharing information. These harmonized approaches will enable the responsible, voluntary, and secure sharing of genomic and clinical data in order to advance understanding, prediction, prevention, and treatment of disease.
Who is involved?
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) is a broad and inclusive organization that includes over 170 of the world’s leading organizations including healthcare providers, research funders, research institutions, disease advocacy organizations, and life science and information technology companies.
