CrisisReady is based at Harvard University and Direct Relief, and collaborates with academic partners, technology companies and response agencies around the world to embed data-driven decision-making into local disaster planning.
Through an international collaboration of researchers, technology companies, nonprofits and policy makers our team develops scalable expertise in Data Readiness, Methods Readiness, and Translational Readiness, by securing data pipelines that provide actionable analyses to meet pre-articulated needs defined by policy makers and response agencies.
Scalable expertise in
for equitable and transparent crisis planning and response.
We help to identify and analyze large scale data required to respond to disasters, prior to crises, so that timely access can be pre-negotiated among data brokers and response agencies.
Data needed during public health emergencies varies widely in origin, representativeness, temporal scales, and spatial granularity. Through our international partnerships we are advancing frameworks for standardized analysis and meaningful interpretation of these disparate data streams.
Even when high quality analyses are available, response agencies often do not have embedded local capacity to drive data driven response. We promote translational readiness through training, data and tools repositories, communities of practice, supporting communities of practice, and policy development.
CrisisReady provides a dual PLATFORM + NETWORK solution co-developed by and for researchers, government agencies, disaster response teams, and data providers, to improve health emergency response globally.
Our PLATFORM data repositories and tools are developed in concert with diverse research and response teams worldwide – including both data providers and users of data. Our NETWORK of practitioners, the global Community of Practice, ensures that key stakeholders constantly inform our collective work and mission.
Our interdisciplinary team spans academia, nonprofits, technology companies, legal experts, and government.
