About us

Public Health Evidence South Asia (PHESA) is an initiative aiming to meet the public health evidence needs of the South Asian region. The initiative, which includes the South Asian satellite of the Cochrane Public Health Group (CPHG), is based at Manipal University. Networking with public health and development agencies across the region, PHESA is working towards building capacity to address Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) public health priorities. Capacity is built through mentoring systematic review authors from LMICs and conducting methodological training related to public health systematic reviews.
