Draft systematic review protocol open for your comments! Evidence synthesis of gender and social outcomes of WASH interventions
As you are aware, it is critical to ensure gender and socially inclusive sanitation services. However, evaluations of WASH interventions focus largely on technical or health outcomes, while social outcomes are often not included. A group of researchers at the Stockholm Environment Institute aims to synthesise research on the impact of WASH interventions on gender and social equality outcomes (GSE) in low- and middle-income countries. The mixed methods systematic review aims to advance evaluation practice in the WASH sector by providing methodological advice on how to include and assess GSE outcomes.
The review is currently at a planning stage and the project team is in the process of preparing a systematic review protocol(methodological plan) to describe methods for literature searches, inclusion of studies, appraise validity of included studies, data extraction and synthesis. As a part of the planning process, the project team would welcome your comments by August 3 2020 on the search strategy (including input on search terms and sources of grey literature), overall scope and clarity of the protocol, or any other remarks you may have.
