Results and findings from the study will begin to be available once all participants have been enrolled and completed the survey (the end of 2022 at the earliest). Summaries of survey data will be posted here on the SMILE website, along with links to all study publications.
The study researchers are committed to publishing only in open-access journals - that is, journals that anyone (participants, researchers, policy makers, and members of the public) can access for free. Full-text publications will only be available in English; however, we will ensure that summaries of the findings are also made available in Portuguese, Kiswahili, and Vietnamese.
Research team members (FIOCRUZ in Brazil, Ace Africa in Kenya, and LIFE Centre in Vietnam) will also work to disseminate and communicate findings to local community advisory boards and local stakeholders once they are available.
