LSTM have contributed to developing the methods and application of evidence synthesis to tropical medicine and public health: we contributed to the development of Cochrane, set up the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group (CIDG), produce important reviews that have influenced global policies, and train and support many a large network of researchers carrying out systematic reviews.
