  1. aTotals are with regard to the number of rapid responses published on individual variables. Percentages pertain to the proportion of rapid responses published on a specific variable out of the total number of rapid responses published overall (n = 102). It should be noted that, with the exception of ‘the number of downloads’, variables are not mutually exclusive, as 25 (24.5%) rapid responses covered more than one population and 39 (38.2%) covered more than one topic (including syndemics, determinants of health, and the prevention, engagement and care cascade). These totals will not add up to the total number of rapid responses published overall (n = 102) and percentages will not add up to 100%
