Evidence Aid makes research evidence on disasters and emergencies like coronavirus freely available to decision-makers across the world.
We are reaching out to our users and supporters for much needed funds to continue our work beyond 2022. We’re passionate about our work and championing evidence-based humanitarian action before, during and after disasters. Our focus is on producing plain language summaries of systematic reviews to show what the evidence says and we strive to ensure that our resources are easy to understand, available in multiple languages and free at the point of use. Our work is impactful as the evidence collections have been used by tens of thousands of people around the world, often in low- and middle-income countries. We are entirely reliant on donations, sponsorship and project-specific funding to support our activities. If you might be able to help with a one-off or regular personal donation, corporate sponsorship or funding of a specific project, please get in touch.
The scope of a project can be small and specific, such as identifying evidence gaps in a particular area, or large, such as establishing a new collection as we have done for Resilient Health Systems, where we now have more than 120 summaries available in three languages, in partnership with the Pan American Health Organisation. Depending on its size, a new collection might cost anything from £100,000 upwards, while the annual cost for maintaining an existing collection might be £25,000 to £75,000. Any level of financial support is welcome, no matter how large or small.
We’ve already reached tens of thousands of people with plain language summaries of systematic reviews relevant to coronavirus.
