Issues Partners Working with the UN Post-2015 Development Agenda

Forging Dynamic Partnership to Change the World



DataDyne.org was formed in 2003 by physician/epidemiologist Joel Selanikio, formerly of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and technologist Rose Donna, formerly of the American Red Cross, to increase the quantity and quality of data available for worldwide public health. DataDyne.org works with mobile information technologies — including handheld computers, mobile phones, the Internet, and GPS — to break down the barriers to data utilization and create sustainable data flows in developing countries. DataDyne.org's premier product is EpiSurveyor, a free web-based product allowing anyone to collect data on basic cellphones for free (www.episurveyor.org). Considered to be the most widely implemented mHealth project in the world, EpiSurveyor is actively used by ministries of health in more than 15 countries, as well as many other NGOs, researchers, and UN agencies. EpiSurveyor has been adopted by the World Health Organization as a standard for electronic health data collection, and is the winner of numerous awards including the 2009 Lemelson-MIT Award for Sustainability.
