Kruxd will provide access to millions of comprehensive pre-cleaned health datasets

DataLEADS has launched Kruxd, to provide access to global health data from one location. Kruxd will provide access to millions of comprehensive pre-cleaned health datasets in easy-to-comprehend and attractive visualisation formats like infographics, dashboards, graphs, etc.

One can log onto and search for datasets by topic, country or year. At Kruxd all the cleaning and processing is done so that everyone can have access to all health data. The platform can be beneficial to doctors, medical health professionals, policymakers, researchers, medical students, pharma companies etc.

Anuja Venkatachalam, Data Editor, Kruxd says, “At Kruxd, we aim to make global health data easily accessible for one and all. We have created a central hub of information flow on global health statistics. The data we maintain is assembled in such a way that it’s ready to be collected and analysed, anywhere and anytime. We strive to use technology to make data more accessible, as accessibility improves transparency and transparency brings trust.”

Tariq Hashmat Tauheed, Senior Data Analyst commented on the launch of Kruxd by saying, “Gathering and analysing data requires time, effort and technical skill as data is collected from multiple sources and is often in unprocessable formats. At Kruxd, we’re always chasing the next big thing, making health data access is just the first step. It’s a global good that each one of us can benefit from. We value building relationships and so here we are building a platform that brings us all together. We believe it’s time health data gets out of its silos and into your hands. Data should not be esoteric anymore. So let’s work together to bring an impact and to build a stronger future with trust, transparency and accessibility.”

Individuals and organisations can join by signing up for a membership. Organisations looking to collaborate on a long-term data project can reach out for primary data collection and analysis. One can also visit this platform to read data stories and commentaries on public health data.
