This October, a Wellcome Trust-funded research collaboration released the largest ever dataset on individual mortality in the developing world. The data, which includes causes of death for over 110,000 individuals in Africa, Asia, and parts of Oceania, was created by the International Network for the Demographic Evaluation of Populations and Their Health (INDEPTH), a collaboration between research centers around the globe that are working on longitudinal health research in low- and middle-income countries. The researchers involved in the collaboration hope the data will help governments in these areas improve planning and public health services provisioning.
