HIA Gateway to Close

Screenshot of NICE's announcement of the closure on the HIA Gateway

NICE has announced that the HIA Gateway will be closed at the end of March. The Gateway was one of the original and best HIA resources on the web; it's loss represents a considerable blow to the HIA community.

The notice on the Gateway says that NICE are seeking a new host for the information held on the Gateway. What are you suggestions and ideas?

A number of suggestions have already been made on the HIANET listserv including hosting the information on the South East Public Health Observatory or setting up a HIA wiki.

If you post your ideas and comments here I'll consolidate them and then distribute them on the HIANET and IAIA HIA listservs.

    HIA Gateway in tranistion

    The HIAgateway will be unavailable while NICE are opening up their new website this week but a contact person is available for people wanting to use material on the site during the rest of this week.

    NICE will establish a link between their new site and HIAgateway URL as a temporary measure so that the site remains live to provide time for seeking an alternative provider.

    NICE will set up a meeting as soon as possible to discuss the way forward for finding a new host for the HIAgateway site.
