Washington, D.C., 26 September 2023 (PAHO/WHO) – The PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center for Knowledge Translation and Health Technology Assessment for Health Equity (CAN-108) is supporting PAHO/WHO by conducting a survey that aims to improve the reporting of health equity considerations in observational studies. The survey for the Extension of the STROBE Statement for Equity will take 15–20 minutes, and it is online. Responses will be accepted until September 30, 2023.
The PAHO/WHO Collaborating Center (CC) for Knowledge Translation and Health Technology Assessment for Health Equity is a global leader in health equity reporting standards and has led the development of research reporting standards for clinical trials (CONSORT-Equity extension), Systematic Reviews (PRISMA-Equity), and now observational studies that provide the bulk of the public health and health systems research evidence (STROBE-Equity). The CC is working with a people-centered approach, getting insights from potential users of these research reporting standards, and the survey is part of this. The topic is central to PAHO’s values and mission, and thus the interest in getting insights from relevant PAHO and external experts.
