Welcome to the Possible Serious Bacterial Infections (PSBI) Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) working group. This is a private, moderated group within the USAID Learning Lab, that serves as a community of practice (COP) for participants and partners of the PSBI BAA process. This COP consists of researchers, implementers, policy makers and representatives from various resource partners including USAID Missions, WHO, Save the Children, UNICEF, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and The World Bank.
The purpose of the group is to facilitate communication, collaboration, and learning throughout key phases of the BAA process, including preparation for the co-creation workshop, development of concept papers and implementation. Members are encouraged to use this space to dialogue, network, and to share ideas and resources to inform the development of concept notes and future strategies to implement and scale-up newborn PSBI treatment in several USAID priority countries.
