New Reference Resource: The World Bank Launches “HealthStats” Portal
The World Bank has launched a new website featuring data on Health, Nutrition and Population (HNP) topics. This new website, HealthStats, is a central place to explore, visualize and download HNP data. It provides access to more than 250 indicators for over 200 countries, covering topics such as health financing, HIV/AIDS, immunization, malaria and tuberculosis, health workforce and health facilities use, nutrition, reproductive health, population estimates and projections, cause of death, non-communicable diseases, and water and sanitation.
Some of the features include:
- Animated data visualization demonstrating trends over decades
- New database of historical and projected population data and estimates
Users can also access data by country, topic or indicator and view data in tables, charts, maps, and pre-formatted tables.
