3 Methods

3.1 Systematic literature review on health topics

3.1.1 Introduction

This series of systematic reviews aims to provide a situational analysis of the existing evidence from humanitarian crises on public health interventions for the following health topics: communicable disease control; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); nutrition; sexual and reproductive health (SRH), including gender-based violence (GBV); mental health and psychosocial support; injury and physical rehabilitation; non-communicable disease (NCD); health services; and health systems.[1] The systematic review methodology adheres to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses (PRISMA) statement.[2]

[1] The health systems literature review also included qualitative studies given the multi-faceted nature of health systems. The methodology for reviewing the qualitative studies is described in section 2.2.5.
