If you want to find out about the research that supports the ETAT+ guidelines, then please take a look at the Evidence Base. There you will find reviews of the evidence, some primary evidence and also powerpoint presentations used to present evidence reviews to the guidelines development panel during the 2010 Child Health Evidence Week in Kenya.

 For publications that describe the development of ETAT+ in Kenya or the research that has been done to evaluate it as part of a more comprehensive strategy to improve care, then please look at Kenyan ETAT+ linked research publications below and/or Quality of Care section.
