A very warm welcome to Cape Town! We look forward to welcoming more than 1400 people from 77 countries to the first ever Global Evidence Summit.

The Global Evidence Summit will be the first time that CochraneThe Campbell CollaborationGuidelines International NetworkInternational Society for Evidence-based Health Care, and Joanna Briggs Institute have joined forces to create this premiere event in evidence-based policy.

The theme of the Summit is ‘Using evidence. Improving lives’ and aims to advance the use of reliable research evidence in addressing some of the world’s most serious health and social challenges. We’ve created an illuminating line-up of content and world-class speakers and facilitators that promises to excite, intrigue and engage wide audiences.

We hope the Summit will provide the fruitful ground for all delegates to meet, share and collaborate to progress our aims. For a full programme schedule visit globalevidencesummit.org/signup.

Best wishes,
