Evidence for Global and Disaster Health (E4GDH) Special Interest Group

Sponsored by: Health and Biosciences Libraries Section

Evidence for Global and Disaster Health [E4GDH] provides a significant opportunity for libraries, under the leadership of IFLA and its Global Vision agenda, to play a critical role in supporting global and disaster health, bringing together partners and stakeholders within and outside the profession.

E4GDH encompasses the potential for librarians and their services to play an enhanced, pivotal role in the collation, organisation, assessment and deployment of information concerning global and disaster health, including disaster preparedness and risk reduction.

For librarians to achieve this potential, the necessary vision, ideas, engagement, evidence, skills training and practical support must be in place. To provide this leadership, and to enable existing expertise, organisations and resources to be harnessed, E4GDH will coordinate, stimulate and take forward the ideas and vision.

Aim / Purpose

To provide co-ordination, advocacy and leadership for cross-sectoral knowledge and library services in support of the Evidence for Global and Disaster Health (E4GDH) agenda.
