Top Ten lessons we built into a new initiative to support evidence-informed policymaking about the non-health SDGs

Nov 27, 2018 12:00 PM - Nov 27, 2018 1:00 PM | Presented by:

Watch the recording from our November 2018 ‘Top Ten‘ webinar: Top Ten lessons we built into a new initiative to support evidence-informed policymaking about the non-health SDGs. 

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are an ambitious agenda aiming to improve global outcomes across a range of social and economic development issues. While evidence-informed policymaking approaches have helped drive progress on a number of health issues, a new partnership among the Forum, its peers in 14 countries, International Development Research Centre (Canada’s premier development-research funding body) and the Hewlett Foundation aims to focus on social systems. Watch the recording from this webinar as John Lavis and Kaelan Moat (Director and Managing Director, respectively, of the McMaster Health Forum), Marie-Gloriose Ingabire (Senior Program Specialist, IDRC), Cristián Mansilla A. (Director of the Evidence-Informed Health Policymaking Unit, Ministry of Health, Government of Chile), and Laurenz Langer (Evidence Synthesis Specialist, Africa Centre for Evidence) share insights from this exciting collaborative venture.

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.
