Global Evidence Summit 2017: Using evidence. Improving lives.
12-16 September 2017 | #GESummit17
Cochrane South Africa is delighted to be hosting the 2017 Global Evidence Summit. The event aims to advance the use of reliable research evidence in addressing some of the world’s most serious health and social challenges. In situations of scarcity, it is particularly important that resources are not wasted on useless or harmful interventions. It is therefore fitting that this unique gathering of world leaders in evidence-based practice, policy, methodology, and advocacy, from five international organizations, will be taking place in Africa. We are confident it will make a meaningful contribution to furthering our shared vision of a healthier and more equitable world.
