The 2017 review aimed to enhance the understanding of the range and diversity of approaches to the centrality of protection, as well as reflect on good practices, challenges and learning opportunities. The review was drafted by a ProCap Advisor and the GPC Coordinator, with substantive inputs from GPC members and was released in 2018.
