A new IFLA Special Interest Group (SIG) on Evidence for Global and Disaster Health has been approved and will be sponsored by the Health and Biosciences Libraries Section. The SIG was recommended for approval by the Professional Committee and endorsed by the Governing Board in December 2017.

Look out for the new web pages for the SIG which will detail its mission and planned activities. The SIG already has permission to hold a Satellite Meeting in Kuala Lumpur on 22 – 23 August 2018 which will examine "Where are we now and where do we need to be?"
