Kok M., de Koning K.A., Ormel H. and Kane S. (2014) International Literature Review:An analysis of systematic reviews on effectiveness and a synthesis of studies including factors influencing performance of CTC providers, REACHOUT Consortium
Policymakers and people implementing health services are increasingly looking to CTC providers to help them overcome various impediments to universal access to health care. But there is currently little evidence of which CTC provider strategies work best in different settings. This literature review has two main objectives: to give an overview of the available evidence regarding the effectiveness of CTC providers; and to identify factors that form barriers to or enablers of the performance of CTC providers and the services they provide, with a focus on broad contextual factors, health system factors, and intervention design factors.
