“Global equity in access to health information is an ambitious goal but it can be achieved if all stakeholders work together”

Welcome to our Evidence for Global & Disaster Health SIG hybrid session during the IFLA congress 2023 [Session 163].

Our SIG will be promoting access to reliable healthcare information as a human right. We are delighted to be joined by the following key organisations, who are working to remove existing barriers to universal, reliable healthcare information:

  • Healthcare Information for All [HIFA]
  • The Pan American Health Organization [PAHO]
  • Research4Life

IFLA Director of Policy and Advocacy, Stephen Wyber,will reflect on the importance of this work, as we discuss next steps. Join our lively conversation – it doesn’t matter what type of library you work in, this essential issue cuts across library sectors.
