The objective of this program is to regularly produces Knowledge Summaries by synthesizing the scientific evidence – on topics related to women’s and children’s health – in a clear, concise, and user-friendly format. By presenting the latest evidence on a single topic and highlighting its relevance to developments in reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH) policy, each summary draws out the practical lessons that may be of use for policymakers and practitioners.
- Typology of evidence syntheses methods, including rapid reviews– typology would be based on a review of evidence synthesis methods, including rapid reviews. Methods would be categorized based on the policy or practice question, the level of available evidence, and the related timelines and resources.
