Table 7 Applicability of the evidence to LMICs

From: Communication around HPV vaccination for adolescents in low- and middle-income countries: a systematic scoping overview of systematic reviews

Review Were some or all of the studies included in the systematic review conducted in LMICs or were the findings in the review consistent across settings or time periods and therefore suggest wide applicability? [Proportion of studies conducted in LMICs] Are there important differences in on-the-ground realities and constraints in LMICs that might substantially alter the feasibility and acceptability of the intervention (where applicable) or raise questions about the applicability of the review findings? Are there important differences in health system arrangements that may mean an intervention could not work in the same way in LMICs or review findings may not be applicable to LMICs?
Abdullahi et al., 2016 [39] Yes [18/18] Likely no Largely not applicable

Ferrer et al., 2014 [41]2 No Likely yes Likely yes

Radisic et al., 2017 [48] No Yes Likely yes

  1. 1The review includes one study from a LMIC; however, this study does not focus on HPV
  2. 2Difficult to assess due to inadequate reporting of the results
  3. 3Did not intend to include studies from LMICs
