If you would like to receive these updates directly, please contact me (callen@evidenceaid.org). Anyone with questions about our work should also contact me.

Highlights from July 2021

We are working on several evidence collections at the moment and launched two new collections this month: Humanitarian Impact of Climate Change and Earthquakes.

Some of the new summaries from July 2021

Sleep problems and COVID-19 in the COVID-19 collection.

Health sector responses to the coincidence of disasters and COVID-19 in both the Earthquake collection and COVID-19 collection.

Payment for environmental services in low‐and middle‐income countries in the Humanitarian Impact of Climate Change collection.

Delivery of nutrition interventions to women and children in conflict settings in low- and middle-income countries in the Prevention and treatment of malnutrition in humanitarian emergencies collection.

Cognitive behavioural therapy for refugees and asylum seeker children in the Health of refugees and asylum seekers collection.

What else this month?

We are pleased to announce that we are working with the Pan American Health Organization to create a Resilient Health Systems collection and with the World Health Organization Kobe Centre to create a Knowledge Hub, based on the book WHO Guidance on Research Methods for Health Emergency and Disaster Risk Management. We’ll provide more details about these projects in our next update.

Social media

We promote our summaries and the work of Evidence Aid generally through our Twitter (@Evidence Aid), Facebook (Evidence Aid – page and group) and Instagram (evidenceaid) social media feeds. Please follow us and share the posts.

Volunteers

We are very grateful to the many volunteers who help Evidence Aid. They contribute to searching, screening and downloading reviews preparing and writing summaries, providing web support and advising on translations. We’ve had more than 100 volunteers throughout the COVID-19 project, from more than 20 countries.
