Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

About Our mission is to create a world where every person has the opportunity to live a healthy, productive life.
Our Commitment to Data Sharing All Funded Research including articles accepted for publication shall be available immediately at publication, without any embargo period. Each accepted article must be accompanied by a Data Availability Statement that describes where any primary data, associated metadata, original software, and any additional relevant materials necessary to understand, assess, and replicate the reported study findings in totality can be found.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation shall require that underlying data supporting the accepted article shall be immediately accessible and open upon article publication. Grantees are encouraged to adhere to the FAIR principles to improve the findability, accessibility, interoperability, and reuse of digital assets.

How we work with Vivli to support that commitment Vivli is one of the repositories that have already been approved for clinical trial data alongside a Gates Open Research article.
Questions or enquiries Researchers can enquire about the availability of data from clinical research studies funded by the foundation by using the Vivli Enquiry form.
