Abstract

After-action reviews (AARs) are a qualitative evaluation methodology conducted after a public health event recommended by the World Health Organization. Of 86 screened articles, we identified eight using AARs to evaluate public health responses to infectious disease outbreaks. Our findings suggested the toolkit is suitable to evaluate responses to infectious disease outbreaks but needs to be adapted for use in particular settings.
