This chapter brings together the results of experimental evaluations of sexual health intervention in the form of systematic reviews. It explores the extent to which systematic reviews are reliable and useful, and their relevance to the field of sexual health. The chapter makes extensive use of examples from a programme of work on evidence-based health promotion undertaken at the Evidence Informed Policy and Practice Information and Coordinating Centre (EPPI-Centre) at the Social Science Research Unit, University of London Institute of Education. It concludes with a subjective summary of the value of systematic reviews of sexual health promotion, and outlines some recommendations for the conduct of systematic reviews of the promotion of sexual health and health promotion in general.
