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.
