We thank Atilola et al.1 for their thoughtful letter in response to our systematic review and meta-analysis of the prevalence of mental health problems among adolescents in juvenile detention and correctional facilities. We agree with Dr. Atilola that search strategies for systematic reviews should specifically look for low- and middle-income countries. In our systematic review, we used the bibliographic index Global Health to address this.
