Advice required: Sources of evidence for disaster health and example questions

3 June, 2018

Dear All,

I am co-delivering a workshop on searching skills for disaster health. I have some ideas for information sources, but I would value your advice:


Campbell Collaboration

Evidence Aid

International Initiative for Impact Evaluation

TRIP Database

NLM Disaster Information Management Research Centre

EM-DAT – The International Disaster Database

Are there any others I should include?

Also, are there any example questions I could use to demonstrate these information sources?

I would be most grateful for your help.

With best wishes, from,
