The Sangath Databank

Welcome to the Sangath databank. We make all our research data available to the public for secondary analysis after a period of two years of completion of the preparation of the database or publication of the planned analyses (whichever is earlier).

Sangath offers free access to its data archive. You will find the overview information of all our datasets listed below; access to the datasets require you to correspond with us using the online form. Sangath encourages use of its research data; however, we have a responsibility to ensure that their use remains ethical and purposeful. In making the data available to individuals and entities, Sangath is bound by its responsibility to guard the confidentiality of study participants. Hence the identity (and identifiable information) of trial participants will not be provided under any circumstances.
