From the Introduction: "In response to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] pandemic, the World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a global COVID-19 anonymized clinical data platform (the 'COVID-19 Data Platform') to enable State Parties to the International Health Regulations (IHR) (2005) to share with WHO anonymized clinical data related to patients with suspected or confirmed infections with SARS-CoV-2 [severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2] (collectively 'anonymized COVID-19 data'). The anonymized COVID-19 data received by WHO will remain the property of the contributing Entity and will be used by WHO for purposes of verification, assessment and assistance pursuant to the IHR (2005), including to inform the public health and clinical operation response in connection with the COVID-19 outbreak. To help achieve these objectives, WHO has established an independent Clinical Advisory Group to advise WHO on global reporting and analysis of the anonymized clinical COVID-19 data. State Parties and other entities are invited to contact WHO to obtain more information about how to contribute anonymized clinical COVID-19 data to the WHO Data Platform. To preserve the security and confidentiality of the anonymized COVID-19 data, State Parties and other entities are respectfully requested to take all necessary measures to protect their respective log-in credentials and passwords to the COVID-19 Data Platform."
