ScHARR becomes technical member of WHO Health Evidence Network

ScHARR is pleased to announce that it has been recently accepted as a technical member of the Health Evidence Network.

Public health and health care policy-makers need a trustworthy source of evidence on which to build health policy. WHO/Europe addresses this need with HEN, which gives rapid access to independent and reliable health information and evidence.

HEN provides:

  • answers to policy questions in the form of evidence-based synthesis reports and summaries
  • easy access to sources of evidence and information from a number of web sites, databases and documents
  • in conjunction with the European Observatory on Health Systems and Polices, policy briefs focused on health systems and of relevance to the European Region’s Member States

HEN is conceived as network of technical members and financial partners, involving United Nations agencies with a mandate related to health, organizations working with evidence-based health policy and health technology assessment, other institutions and governments interested in funding advanced projects related to public health issues.
