In conducting an evidence map, we
- Systematically source, assess and organise a body of knowledge to provide a high-level overview of the size and nature of the available evidence in order to inform and facilitate the use of this evidence-base.
- Provide policymakers with an overview of where research evidence and gaps are and the quality of the available evidence.
- Provide size, type, location and nature of evidence are shown as an interactive visual interface
- The visual interface is designed to enable easy user (policymakers, practitioners and civil society) engagement, with what can be a complex body of evidence
Example of a question: What are the strategies that may strengthen provision of mental health care at Primary Health Care level?
Product: Visual map of evidence on the causes of a problem, or the interventions that have been used to try to solve the problem
