World EBHC Day is celebrated on October 20 in partnership with JBI, Cochrane, the Campbell Collaboration, Guidelines International Network (GIN), the Institute for Evidence-Based Healthcare, the Centre for Evidence-based Health Care, and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
The campaign for World EBHC Day 2023 is centered on Evidence and Global Health Equity. Evidence is a prerequisite for achieving global health equity.
