EHS-COVID (93) Medline & Embase search for papers relating to Essential Health Services and COVID-19

25 November, 2020

Dear HIFA colleagues,

Our thanks to HIFA Literature Search expert John Eyers who has run searches on Medline and Embase for papers relating to Essential Health Services and COVID-19:

30 papers were identified up to 23 November 2020 and their titles are shown below.

I note from these titles that only some of them relate to the impact of COVID-19 on essential health services. I suspect this reflects the challenge of running a search strategy on this topic that will be both sensitive and specific.

To comment on any paper, please email the HIFA forum:
