Does an organization have to share data to be a part of the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health?

The Global Alliance for Genomics and Health seeks active participation of diverse stakeholders with various perspectives, including funding institutions, patient advocacy groups, technology companies, and others who do not themselves generate or analyze data. While all members of the alliance are committed to advancing the goal of effective and responsible data sharing, some members may not themselves have data to share. At this point in the development of the Global Alliance, each organization decides for itself whether and how to apply these approaches and share data to advance human health.
