Monday 29th November: Deadline for Call for Proposals for Systematic Reviews in International Development (Aus Aid and DFID)
The Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) and the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) are announcing a joint call for proposals for systematic reviews to strengthen the international community’s capacity for evidence-based policy making.
AusAID, DFID and 3ie have developed a range of priority systematic review questions and will commission 59 studies in February 2011.
Systematic reviews examine the existing evidence on a particular intervention or program in low and middle income countries, drawing also on evidence from developed countries when pertinent. The studies should be carried out according to recognized international standards and guidelines. All studies will be subject to an external review process and for this purpose teams will be encouraged to register for peer review with a relevant systematic review coordinating body.
