Call for contributions: Draft Recommendation on the Protection and Use of Health-Related Data

The international consultation on health data convoked by the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to privacy (UN SRP), Joe Cannataci, took place in Strasbourg on 11-12 June 2019 and was very successful, productive and enabled in-depth interdisciplinary and international discussions on the protection and use of health-related data.

As a result of the meeting and after due consideration of all comments received before and during the meeting, the UN SRP Task Force on Health Data has produced a revised version of the draft Recommendation, which is attached. In this regard, you are invited to the final round of written consultations, by responding to this new version and share your comments to the text attached not later than 26 June 2019 to mariana.rissetto@univie.ac.at.

Last but not least, I would like to thank participants to the international consultation meeting for their engagement and interest in contributing to this discussion.

The UN SRP looks forward to your inputs and comments.
