GAIA AT A GLANCE
GAIA is a 2 year project, coordinated by the Brighton Collaboration Foundation with core funding by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation for consortium partners to concert activities. GAIA outputs will be developed in close interaction with a global network of volunteer experts to ensure global applicability and usefulness of the standards developed.
GAIA aims to improve data generated for strengthening programs of immunization in pregnancy by harmonizing maternal, pregnancy, fetal, and neonatal health outcome assessment with specific focus on Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC).
GAIA will create a common understanding of the outcomes monitored, developing a common language for effective scientific communication about outcomes and by improving data comparability between studies to allow for better synthesis and pooling.
The GAIA standards, guidance and tools are to be developed for the benefit of all concerned with investigating or monitoring the safety of immunization programs in pregnancy around the world.
