This project is headed by the South-African Medical Research Council and is funded by the EDCTP. GELA starts in April 2022, runs for 36 months and includes partners in 7 countries/ institutions.
GELA will build on and add value to the large-scale programme of global child health guideline development lead by the World Health Organization (WHO) with adaptation and implementation lead by the WHO Afro regional office and national ministries.
GELA will make use of innovative formats and the MAGIC authoring and publication platform (MAGICapp) to adapt, translate WHO guidelines for national and local use. MAGIC will also support development and adaptation of the guideline recommendations, customised to the needs of decision makers and making use of the GRADE EtD framework.
MAGIC is now hiring a senior researcher to lead and coordinate this work, which is also linked to an ongoing WHO COVID-19 living guideline project (GATEWAY).
