Cochrane, together with four other leading organizations in the production and dissemination of evidence for decision making in the global health, social, and economic policy and practice sectors - proudly announces the first ‘Global Evidence Summit’ in Cape Town, South Africa.
Next year, Cochrane, a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health, is joining with four other leading organizations – the Guidelines International Network, The Campbell Collaboration, the International Society for Evidence-based Health Care, and the Joanna Briggs Institute - to hold the first ‘Global Evidence Summit’ (GES) in Cape Town, South Africa from 12-16 September 2017.
The theme of the GES, ‘Using Evidence. Improving Lives’, will highlight and promote evidence-informed approaches to health policy and development, offering the most cost-effective interventions.
The summit will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing low- and middle-income countries - a reason why the GES is to be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa.
