Leptospirosis is a zoonotic disease of public health importance in India. A country-level evidence gap map was developed to identify gaps on epidemiology of leptospirosis. It is the first such on leptospirosis globally and on any single disease condition in India. The steps for development of evidence gap map were development of a framework to map evidence, retrieval of evidence, data extraction parameters and mapping of available evidence in evidence gap map framework. The prevalence evidence…

TLDR
It is suggested that, as in other tropical regions, leptospirosis is widespread in the PIs while showing some epidemiological heterogeneity, and the relative importance of each animal species in human infection needs to be clarified.

What is an evidence map? A systematic review of published evidence maps and their definitions, methods, and products
TLDR
The principal conclusion of the evaluation of studies that call themselves “evidence maps” is that the implied definition of what constitutes an evidence map is a systematic search of a broad field to identify gaps in knowledge and/or future research needs that presents results in a user-friendly format, often a visual figure or graph, or a searchable database.
