(Un)contested evidence: scientific literature, systematic reviews and the politics of evidence in the introduction of HPV vaccines in Colombia

Resultado de la investigación: Contribución a RevistaArtículo

Resumen

Este trabajo analiza las tensiones entre la literatura científica y las revisiones sistemáticas en la producción de evidencia en salud. Las revisiones sistemáticas son dispositivos desarrollados - dentro de la medicina basada en la evidencia - para navegar por las complejidades de la literatura científica que prometen un relato claro y simple del conocimiento sobre un tema en particular. Sin embargo, en la práctica, las revisiones sistemáticas tienen una relación más compleja con la literatura. Las revisiones sistemáticas se configuran de acuerdo con el interés de los grupos locales que las producen. En este artículo, exploro el formato, la elaboración y el manejo de revisiones sistemáticas de la evidencia relacionada con las vacunas contra el VPH en Colombia. Este caso muestra las formas en que las revisiones sistemáticas median entre el requisito de presentar la evidencia que surge de la literatura internacional y la necesidad de contar con datos localmente relevantes.
