Welcome to CEBHA ( Collaboration for Evidence Based Healthcare in Africa )

Irrespective of where you live, the need for solid evidence to achieve effective health care is of utmost importance. Where the unmet needs for health services are most prominent, the application of the cost effective interventions should be of the highest priority. Working in an evidence based way in the African context means setting the right priorities, conducting valid research, retrieving evidence and developing systematic reviews of evidence relevant for countries in Africa. There is also need to bring evidence from research to practice by developing, adapting and disseminating guidelines to support health care for all.

The information, communication and technological revolution now makes it possible to widely apply the methods and advances of Evidence Based Healthcare ( EBHC ) in Africa. Therefore we aim to link and add upon existing initiatives for EBHC in Africa to facilitate sustainability.

The Collaboration for Evidence Based Healthcare in Africa ( CEBHA ) will focus on African health problems, research priorities and needs.
