Malaffi recognised as a successful public-private data-sharing partnership model
13 October 2021
The National Committee for Sustainable Development Goals recently launched a whitepaper “Accelerating achievement of the SDGs in the UAE: A blueprint for public-private data-sharing partnerships” as part of its efforts to accelerate the achievements of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals in the UAE by highlighting the partnerships between public and private sectors in the field of statistical data exchange.
Developed by the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Centre, in cooperation with the UAE Private-Sector Advisory Council and Kearney, the report recognized Malaffi has a successful public-private data sharing partnership which helped address urgent COVID-19 problems.
According to the United Nations’ official website on the SDGs, 90% of countries are still experiencing one or more disruptions to essential health services when reporting data under SDG 3 Health and Well-being. However, an integrated Health Information Exchange platform proved advantageous during the Covid-19 pandemic. Leveraging real-time public-private data integration through Malaffi helped the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DOH) to achieve a greater response to the pandemic.
