Rapid evidence assessments

DFID rapid evidence assessments provide rigorous and policy relevant syntheses of evidence, carried out in 3-6 months.

Rapid evidence assessments provide a more structured and rigorous search and quality assessment of the evidence than a literature review but are not as exhaustive as a systematic review. They can be used to:

  • gain an overview of the density and quality of evidence on a particular issue
  • support programming decisions by providing evidence on key topics
  • support the commissioning of further research by identifying evidence gaps
