Survey: Capacity across Africa to produce evidence maps, and systematic reviews and other forms of syntheses

This short survey from the Africa Evidence Network (www.africaevidencenetwork.org) seeks to know where existing capacity for evidence maps, and systematic reviews and other forms of syntheses, lies across Africa. This survey takes 10 minutes. The deadline is Tuesday, 28th February. For the purpose of this survey, they have included the following methodologies: systematic reviews (with or without meta-analysis), reviews of systematic reviews, rapid evidence assessments and evidence maps. These can be conducted by any type of organisation, published or unpublished, funded or unfunded, by traditional research producers (e.g. in universities) and by those who make decisions.
