The SDMX-HD is a Statistical Data and Metadata Exchange (SDMX)-based data exchange format intended to serve the needs of the Monitoring and Evaluation community. It has been developed by WHO and partners to facilitate exchange of indicator definitions and data in aggregate data systems.

This site is dedicated to the development of the SDMX-HD and supporting the community which will be implementing the standard.
