Cochrane Reviews from READ-It Partners in the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.
READ-It aims to increase evidence-informed decisions to improve health and health care for the poor in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). We synthesise relevant and reliable research to contribute to a global evidence-base to make health care more effective, improve health, reduce illness and death, and avoid the public and providers wasting money on ineffective health care. We strive to build capacity of groups worldwide to prepare, interpret and use these systematic reviews.
The focus of these Cochrane Reviews is on infectious diseases, in particular: malaria, tuberculosis (TB), diarrhoea, HIV, mental health, reproductive health, and health systems; all relevant to the health of the poor, particularly women, in LMICs.
