General discussions forum

The general forum is a place for those running HLF-supported projects, or those interested in doing so, to ask questions, share learning, seek help and exchange stories.

What’s worked well for you, and what could have been done better? What advice can you give others in a similar situation? What areas do you need support in? What success stories do you have to tell? Share your experiences in our online community.
