The increasing risk that the Supreme Court will overturn federal constitutional abortion protections has refocused attention on the role digital service providers of all kinds play in facilitating access to health information, education, and care—and the data they collect in return.
In a post-Roe world, service providers can expect a raft of subpoenas and warrants seeking user data that could be employed to prosecute abortion seekers, providers, and helpers. They can also expect pressure to aggressively police the use of their services to provide information that may be classified in many states as facilitating a crime.
Whatever your position on reproductive rights, this is a frightening prospect for data privacy and online expression. That’s the bad news.

Global.health is a collaborative effort by technologists and researchers from leading international institutions to build a trusted, detailed, and accurate resource of real-time infectious disease data.
By creating a centralized open resource of verified case-level data from around the world, our aim is to accelerate the work of researchers, public health officials, and the global community to better prepare for, respond to, and reduce the burden of disease outbreaks. We hope that this work will help cultivate a global community invested in improving health outcomes for all through open and secure data sharing.
This repository contains dated records of curated Monkeypox cases from the 2022 outbreak (April - ), a data dictionary, and a script used to pull contents from a spreadsheet into JSON and CSV files.
The script is intended for use by the curation team and supporting engineers. It requires access to the relevant Google Sheet, and a Google Cloud service account.
The data dictionary is located in the root directory of this project. It contains information about columns/fields in the data sets.
The archives folder contains dated JSON and CSV files. They are currently uploaded manually; regularly and automatically updated data sets live in an (currently private) S3 bucket.
The data is updated six times per day.

Sometimes called pregnancy resource centers or crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), fake clinics do NOT provide comprehensive reproductive health care—or much of any "health care" at all! Instead, they use phony ads to trick pregnant people into making an appointment, promising “free ultrasounds” or “pregnancy support.” Once inside, people are lied to, shamed, and pressured about their reproductive health decisions, often delaying their procedure or pushing them past the deadline for a legal abortion altogether.
Fake clinics are often made to look like medical facilities, yet they don't practice medicine (outside of an occasional ultrasound or STI test), nor do they use medical facts or standardized ethics. More and more, these predatory places are funded by taxpayer dollars, impacting poor women and people of color the hardest.
Plan C is a small but mighty team of veteran public health advocates, researchers, social justice activists and digital strategists.
We envision a world in which the ability to end an early pregnancy is in the hands of those who need it.
