SWB’s projects are the core of our mission. Through these projects we help international health workers in resource-limited settings who do not have statistical training by partnering them with professional and student statisticians. The scope of our work is diverse, ranging from survey design to analysis to efforts to provide statistical software for developing nations.
International Health covers a number of important fields including health policy, the response to environmental disasters, anything which impacts on health including poverty reduction and improving education, and the study of health in developing nations. These activities are often hampered through a lack of resources and technical expertise where it is most needed. Statistics plays a vital role within International Health, where statistics can be defined as the ability to collect and interpret valid data describing the impact of a given health concern and its possible causes. Statistics Without Borders was established to meet the vast shortage of statistical expertise within the field of International Health.
