Promoting an evidence based approach to humanitarian action at the World Humanitarian Summit

Research: An evidence review of research on health interventions in humanitarian crises

The need for a stronger scientific evidence base for responses to humanitarian crises has been identified by various public health actors.

To this end, ELHRA (with funding from the UK Department for International Development (DFID) and the Wellcome Trust) commissioned a study to review the evidence base of public health interventions in humanitarian crises.

The overall aim of the review was to provide a rigorous assessment of the current quality and depth of the evidence-base that informs humanitarian public health programming globally.
