Webinar: Finding the Evidence for Global and Disaster Health
On 19 November 2018, the IFLA Evidence for Global and Disaster Health (E4GDH) Special Interest Group hosted this webinar in conjunction with Evidence Aid, as part of Humanitarian Evidence Week – promoting a more evidence-based approach to natural disasters and other humanitarian emergencies.
Isla Kuhn, Medical Librarian at Cambridge University, and Caroline De Brún, Knowledge and Evidence Specialist at Public Health England (PHE), presented the session.
The first half of the session featured the Library and Information Services project (HIFA LIS), which informed the development of this E4GDH Special Interest Group, together with an introduction to the work of Evidence Aid.
