A general search is available above. More specific searches according to the Evidence Aid categories (Health issues, Emergency type, Humanitarian cluster, and Person groups), can be accessed below this text.
In addition to the resources, there are also five disaster-specific Collections. Three are available through the Cochrane Library for the topics – Burns; Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; and Flooding and Poor Water Sanitation (please note that these Special Collections are not searchable and do not include all the systematic reviews that are listed below). Five Special Collections are available directly from the Evidence Aid website – Windstorms, Earthquakes, Ebola, The Health of Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Europe, Zika and Prevention and treatment of acute malnutrition in emergencies and humanitarian-crises.
Evidence Aid, along with partners (including the International Rescue Committee (USA) and Cochrane), has assessed published systematic reviews. Those identified as being of relevance to natural disasters, humanitarian crises or major healthcare emergencies, that include health outcomes, are included within the four categories and include a summary of the review before it links to the full article. Most summaries are also available in Spanish and French.
If you would like to use an appraisal framework when considering the relevance and quality of the full reviews that Evidence Aid links to, a few useful tools are: AMSTAR, CASP and ROBIS. Guidance is also available on reporting reviews: PRISMA.
We thank and acknowledge all those who have provided translations through Translators Without Borders, and independently.
