Amrapali Zaveri Abstract below:

Abstract:
  In the first part, the conversion of World Health Organizations' Global  
Health Observatory (GHO) dataset from spreadsheets to RDF will be  
explained. GHO comprises more than 50 different datasets, it covers all 198  
WHO member countries and is updated as more recent or revised data becomes  
available or when there are changes to the methodology being used. However,  
this data is only accessible via complex spreadsheets and, therefore,  
queries over the 50 different datasets as well as combinations with other  
datasets are very tedious and require a significant amount of manual work.  
By making the data available as RDF, we lower the barrier for data re-use  
and integration. Thus, the details of the conversion and publication  
process of the GHO data will be described in detail.

In the second part of the presentation, the application of the GHO dataset  
in evaluating the disparity between the availability of treatment options  
and the global burden of disease will be described, that is, the  
ReDD-Observatory project. The disparity is partially caused by the limited  
access to information that would allow health care and research policy  
makers make more informed decisions regarding health care services. The  
hindrance lies in reliably obtaining and integrating data regarding the  
disease burden and the respective research investments. Therefore, as the  
Linked Data paradigm provides a simple mechanism for publishing and  
interlinking structured information on the Web, an opportunity is created  
to reduce this information gap that would allow for better policies in  
response to these disparities. The details of the process involved in  
evaluating the disparity will thus be discussed in detail.
