Following the devastation caused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, Evidence Aid worked with colleagues in the disaster community to compile the following evidence-based resources that might help.
If you would like to use an appraisal framework when considering the relevance and quality of the full reviews (see below) that Evidence Aid links to, a couple of useful tools are: AMSTAR and CASP. Guidance is also available on reporting reviews: PRISMA.
