African Evidence Network 2016

EVIDENCE 2016 aims to encourage and promote evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) in Africa, thereby contributing to the development of effective public policies, efficient implementation of services, as well as joint learning on interventions that tackle poverty and equality in African countries.

Who should attend: Anyone who works in Africa and has an interest in evidence, its production and use in decision-making. This includes those working in government, civil society, universities and the private sector.

The Network was conceived in December 2012 following the Campbell Collaboration’s mini-colloquium in Dhaka, Bangladesh. At this colloquium, a number of African delegates from various systematic review and EIDM organisations had a meeting at which they agreed to form a network with the purpose of sharing information, experiences and ideas on EIDM. The AEN thus seeks to link up people and activities across various fields, initiatives and organisations working to produce and use evidence. The AEN is supported by the UK Department for International Development (DFID) via the University of Johannesburg’s Building Capacity to Use Research Evidence (UJ-BCURE) Programme, an initiative aimed at enhancing the use of evidence in the governments of South Africa and Malawi through mentorship programmes and practical workshops.
