Joseph Mathew

G-I-N Individual Board Trustee 2019 - 2021

 

Dr. Joseph L. Mathew is a Pediatric Pulmonologist at the Advanced Pediatrics Centre, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh (India). He is a leader of the Evidence Based Medicine movement and attempted to translate research evidence to health-care practice in developing countries. He is active within the Cochrane Collaboration, Health Technology Assessment International (HTAi), Society for Medical Decision Making (SMDM), and Guidelines International Network (G-I-N). He was the Founder Chair of HTAi Interest Subgroup for Developing Countries (2008-13) and recently initiated the G-I-N LMIC Working Group (2015). He has contributed significantly towards capacity building efforts for evidence-informed decision-making through the SIGNET Capacity and Capability Building programme. He is the lead author of EURECA (Evidence that is Understandable, Relevant, Extendible, Current and Appraised) and also developed the KNOW ESSENTIALS tool for evidence-informed decision-making in resource-limited settings.

 

Contribution to G-I-N

  • Committed Individual member since 2010
  • Founder and Chair of G-I-N Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC) Working Group.
  • Worked closely with Sue Huckson, Individual Trustee in her role as Board Liaison
  • Member, G-I-N Membership Sub Committee (since 2016).
  • Drafted a paper to enhance G-I-N membership by increasing perception of value for members.
  • Invited as Plenary session Speaker at G-I-N 2016.
  • Presented in every Annual Conference since 2015.

 

Vision for G-I-N

In the next three years, G-I-N could be a truly global society,  also committed to unempowered and/or low resource settings. If I were to be elected as Individual Trustee, I would bring a different perspective to the Board, ensuring that the voice of LMIC members/institutions/organisations is heard during strategic discussions and decisions.
