Intervention Effect Estimate Summaries
the Lives Saved Tool (LiST)

As part of the development process of the Lives Saved Tool (LiST), two journal supplements were published that provide peer-reviewed, publically available documentation of the methods utilized and assumptions made in that development process: BMC Public Health; International Journal of Epidemiology.

The summaries below provide a quick brief for each of the intervention effect reviews included in the supplements.
