About the Repository of Public Health Evidence Syntheses

It is critical for public health organizations to work together across jurisdictions and share our efforts in response to public health challenges. To minimize duplication of efforts and facilitate collaboration across Canada, the National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) launched the Repository of Public Health Syntheses. This repository hosts completed and in-progress rapid evidence reviews focused on a range of public health topics, including COVID-19.
