‘My Data,Our Health’ Youth Ambassadors 2023 – Tanzania 


Where is my Data?

In advocating for a health data governance framework, Imara Leadership Initiative (ILI) Tanzania in partnership with Transform Health aims to engage young people, community members and politicians in the discussion on how we can build trust in the collection, use, management, sharing and disposal of our personal health data.

 ‘My Data, Our Health’ is a global campaign by Transform Health and supported by Imara Leadership Initiative in Tanzania the campaign is being driven by several community-based organisations who are engaging individuals on questions of access, control and rights over their health data. We are shifting health data from a technical issue to a personal one by putting individuals in the driving seat and amplifying their stories.
