The INDEPTH Network's MISSION is to harness the collective potential of the world's community-based longitudinal demographic surveillance initiatives in resource constrained countries to provide a better, empirical understanding of health and social issues, and to apply this understanding to alleviate the most severe health and social challenges.

The GOAL of the INDEPTH Network Data Repository is THEREFORE to enable INDEPTH member HDSSs and associated researchers to contribute and share fully documented, high-quality datasets with the scientific community in support of the Network's MISSION.
