How do I connect with others on the site and have conversations with them?

At the top left of most project pages there is a red Contact button. You can click this button to fill out a form that will reach the direct email address of that project’s point of contact. At the moment there are no capabilities for real-time messaging on the site.

Is this site private or public?

While this site is intended for our community of practice, the site itself and all of the information on the site is currently available to anyone from the public who are interested in getting involved with the community’s efforts to end pandemics.

How do I know when to submit my updates to the site?

The Pandemics team has an internal vetting process for what new content should be shared on the website. Not all partner accomplishments will be shared at all times. We will reach out to partners directly to request new content for the site based on ongoing conversations.
