mhGAP Evidence Resource Centre

The mhGAP Evidence Resource Centre contains the background material, process documents, and the evidence profiles and recommendations in electronic format and is organized around the mhGAP priority conditions. It integrates best available evidence with the individual clinical expertise through the use of scoping questions that explore many commonly seen issues in relation to health care. These questions have been chosen, systematically researched and reviewed extensively with the best available evidence by a selected panel of experts.

The recommendations based on evidence-based guidelines are the basis of the mhGAP- Intervention Guide for mental, neurological and substance use disorders in non-specialized settings. The evidence profiles have been updated in 2012 to include any new and relevant systematic reviews. The priority conditions identified by mhGAP are listed below.
