Watch the recording from our April 2019 ‘Top Ten‘ webinar: Supporting evidence-informed policymaking in the Caribbean.

Efforts to establish a range of mechanisms in support evidence-informed policymaking have taken root in the Caribbean in the last decade. With the recent establishment of the Caribbean Centre for Health Systems Research and Development (CCHSRD), based at the University of the West Indies’ St. Augustine Campus, there is now a focal point that can provide leadership for supporting efforts across the entire region. Donald Simeon and Andrea Yearwood (Director and Policy Specialist, respectively, at CCHSRD) shared insights about their own experience, and the Centre’s exciting vision for supporting evidence-informed policymaking in the Caribbean.

Webinars in this series feature top ten insights into health- and social-systems, evidence-informed policymaking and a range of key health and social issues, from Forum experts and influential policymakers, stakeholders and researchers from around the world.
