As a component of the Healthy, Empowered, Resilient (H.E.R.) Pregnancy Program Year One process evaluation, a literature review was conducted. The purpose was to identify elements of successful programming and models similar to the work of the H.E.R. Program. The review was designed to capture information on what similar programs are operating both in Canada and internationally to support street-involved pregnant women and youth. The review provides information on key questions and information sought about service delivery models for street-involved pregnant women. It summarizes and provides details on similar programming offered for street-involved pregnant women that align with the H.E.R. Program goals and principles. The search strategy components include questions, scope, search strategy and reporting details as outlined, below. This information is followed by the results from the literature review, presented in narrative form.[Taken from Introduction and Methodology]
