Today CADTH is proud to celebrate the first-ever World Evidence-Based Healthcare (EBHC) Day, a global initiative to highlight the critical role of evidence in improving health outcomes, enhancing clinical care, and informing policy.
Organizations from around the world are using this day to spotlight how the global evidence community is collaborating to advance the use of reliable evidence to address some of the world’s most serious health challenges.
