About the Conference

  With speakers from all over the world representing a variety of stakeholders and with a focus on evidence generation, implementation and impact evaluation, the conference attempts to address the following:

- Where is “living” evidence in the evidence ecosystem? How to generate and support decision-makers with “living” evidence? Can it be “global” evidence? (Theme 4) 

- How to bridge the gap between (research and data evidence) and impact (policy and practice)? Can value-based healthcare be informed by evidence? (Theme 5) 

- Sharing The innovative experience of putting evidence into policy and practice from different parts of the world (Theme 6)
