Literature Review: Evidence-Based Interventions
Complete this worksheet by identifying three to five global health sources. These global health sources will help to inform the evidence-based interventions that you will recommend to address the global health challenge you will address in your final project. Summarize the main ideas from each resource and compare similar themes and interesting controversies across the research.
Potential sources should originate from peer-reviewed global health literature or may come from one of the following agencies:
· Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
· The World Bank
· Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation
· Any United Nations agency, including World Health Organization
Note: Follow the example in the first row. Add a row for each new source (e.g., an article, book, chapter, webpage, etc.) that you are including in your literature review. Change headings or add additional columns to track other variables as needed.
Setting and Method
Potential Application to Final Project
Article: (Author, Title, Year)
Example: Goodburn, E., & Campbell, O. (2001). Reducing maternal mortality in the developing world: Sector-wide approaches may be the key. British Medical Journal, 322(7291), 917–920.
Source analyzes the role that strengthening the overall health sector can play in reducing maternal mortality
Source analyzes successful components of healthcare systems in various countries that were successful in reducing maternal mortality
Sector-wide approaches to reducing maternal mortality that emphasize improving the overall healthcare system could have significant impact on reducing the maternal mortality rate
This was not an actual study, rather a set of recommendations or “lessons learned”
Strengthening the relationships between and the performance of the various providers in the region could help to reduce maternal mortality
