Registration for early bird tickets open until 30 June 2017

Registration has now opened for the first ever Global Evidence Summit! Register before the 30 June 2017 to get over 11% off the standard ticket price. 

This year, Cochrane, is joining with four other leading organizations – Guidelines International Network, Campbell Collaboration, International Society for Evidence-based Health Care, and Joanna Briggs Institute - to hold the first ‘Global Evidence Summit’ in Cape Town, South Africa from 13-16 September 2017.

 The theme of the Summit, ‘Using Evidence. Improving Lives.’, will highlight and promote evidence-informed approaches to health and social research, policy and development.

The Summit will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing low- and middle-income countries - a key reason why the Summit will be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa. The event is expected to attract up to 1500 delegates and will bring together many parts of the evidence community to promote evidence-informed decision-making worldwide.
