What is the Global Alliance?
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (Global Alliance) is an international coalition, dedicated to improving human health by maximizing the potential of genomic medicine through effective and responsible data sharing. The promise of genomic data to revolutionize biology and medicine depends critically on our ability to make comparisons across millions of human genome sequences, but this requires coordination across organizations, methods, diseases, and even countries. The members of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health are working together to create interoperable approaches and catalyze initiatives that will help unlock the great potential of genomic data.
What is the Global Alliance doing?
Since its formation in 2013, the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health is leading the way to enable genomic and clinical data sharing. The Alliance’s Working Groups are producing high-impact deliverables to ensure such responsible sharing is possible, such as developing a Framework for Data Sharing to guide governance and research and a Genomics API to allow for the interoperable exchange of data. The Working Groups are also catalyzing key collaborative projects that aim to share real-world data, such as Matchmaker Exchange, Beacon Project, and BRCA Challenge.
Who is involved?
The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health is an independent, non-governmental alliance, made up of hundreds of world-leading organizations and individuals from across the world. The Global Alliance is focused on bringing together a diverse set of key stakeholders across regions and sectors, including leaders in healthcare and research, patient and disease advocacy, and life science and information technology.
