Global Evidence Summit 2017 - Using Evidence. Improving Lives

Guidelines International Network (G-I-N) together with four other leading organisations in the production and dissemination of evidence for decision making in the global health, social and economic policy and practice sectors - proudly announces the first ‘Global Evidence Summit’ in Cape Town, South Africa.

Next year, G-I-N, is joining four other leading organisations – Cochrane, The Campbell Collaboration, the International Society for Evidence-based Health Care and the Joanna Briggs Institute -  to hold the first ‘Global Evidence Summit’ in Cape Town, South Africa from 13-16 September 2017.

The theme of the Summit, ‘Using Evidence. Improving Lives’ will highlight and promote evidence-informed approaches to health policy and development, offering the most cost-effective interventions.

The summit will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing Low and Middle-Income countries, a reason why the Global Evidence Summit (GES), is to be hosted in Cape Town, South Africa. The event is expected to attract up to 2000 delegates and will bring together many parts of the evidence community to promote evidence-informed decision-making worldwide.

More detail on dates, registration and the scientific programme will be announced in the coming months. Registration will open in late 2016.

You can find out more at and also on the G-I-N webpage. Also please follow us on Twitter @GESummit #GESummit17 and find us on Facebook.

We look forward to seeing you in Cape Town in 2017!
