HIFA publishes blog to celebrate World Evidence Based Health Care Day, 20 October 2023

13 October, 2023

Dear HIFA colleagues,

A few weeks ago I presented HIFA at the Cochrane Colloquium in London on 6 September with HIFA Country Representative regional coordinator Vedant Jha.

We have adapted our presentation as a blog to celebrate World Evidence Based Health Care Day (for which we are a partner) and this has just been published here: https://worldebhcday.org/blog/2023/evidence-prerequisite-global-health-e...

The blog succinctly represents not only the rationale for HIFA and how we work, but also our current strategy to engage our 20,000 HIFA members and 420 HIFA supporting organisations to encourage WHO to champion the goal of universal access.

The blog ends with a call to action for people to complete the survey. This is a great opportunity to do a final publicity push for the last few days up to 15th October. Please feel free to forward the blog to your contacts.

Meanwhile the HIFA social media team is helping to get the word out, not forgetting to include the hashtag #WorldEBHCDay

Best wishes, Neil
