Data Champion Hans Rosling passes away

Everyone at the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data is very saddened by the death of Hans Rosling. He was an inspiration to many of us in his relentless quest to make data tell stories, to challenge myths, and to give confidence to those working for a better world. Our thoughts are with his family and friends, and together we will continue his mission and work towards a world of better, more useful and accessible data. Viva factfullness!
