Other regulations and laws impacting use of health data

In addition to general data legislation, there may be other laws, policies or regulations that impact governance of health data. For example:

Key questions to ask:

  • Are there any other applicable laws, policies or regulations that may impact the access, use or sharing of health data between third parties?

  • To what extent is there a data policy or strategy for your jurisdiction, including data access, use and sharing?

  • Is the country a member of any international organisation, policies or frameworks that promote a specific type of data collection, use and sharing? For example, the Nagoya Protocol on Access and Benefit Sharing.
