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.
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.
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.
