Re: Fwd: [SuSanA Forum] The completion of the SuSanA Phase 3 BMGF Grant - building on the results in future? (Announcements regarding SuSanA)

Good news: I am now able to share with you the final report about this grant that we had submitted to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) in January 2019. You see here a slightly edited version (for example I had to make all the internal links - which were going to documents on Google Drive - public facing).

The file is also here as the last one in a long list of downloads (scroll to the bottom of the page):

For those who want to see all the details of the work we did in the grant, I have uploaded a pile of documents that we (the grant consortium) produced to a new SuSanA library entry here:

Each of those documents can be accessed via the SuSanA library links that I provided above. There is one link for the main documents, and one link for the secondary documents.

Happy reading! Please don't hesitate to ask if anything is unclear or any of the links are broken. We got a lot of work done in those six years of BMGF co-funding for SuSanA (2012-2018). I hope a lot of these materials will continue to be useful into the future of SuSanA! (see more about the future of SuSanA in this thread: ).
