GLOSS update!

We have been a bit quiet on our website… because we’ve been super busy on the ground! Follow-up ended on Monday 15 January 2018. We identified over 2 700 women during identification week (28 November to 04 December 2017); by end of follow-up very few women remained hospitalized.

We wanted to thank everyone involved in this enormous, collective effort! All regional and country coordinators for ensuring women were correctly identified and followed-up, including assuring data quality. We also want to thank all the facility coordinators (about 500 of them!) for making sure the study ran smoothly on the ground. Lastly, but not least, we wanted to also thank the data collectors and data entry people who have been relentless in their diligence.

We are excited for the upcoming weeks and months as we finalize data gathering and get around to understanding what they tell us.
