African Cochrane Indaba 2013

The South African Cochrane Centre (SACC) is celebrating its 15th Anniversary. To mark this achievement we would like to invite all African Cochrane contributors to participate in our African Cochrane Indaba – Global Evidence, Local Application.

This event will create opportunities for sharing, learning and development. We will have a chance to share our many experiences in working in evidence-based healthcare; participate in relevant workshops and capacity development events to promote on-going learning related to Cochrane Review production and dissemination; and engage in rigorous discussion about how to ensure the evidence that we generate is promoted and communicated optimally to healthcare decision-makers.

This event will coincide with The Cochrane Collaboration’s 20th Anniversary celebrations – an opportunity to reflect on the past, present and future of the Collaboration.


The objectives of the African Cochrane Indaba

  • Capacity development on methods issues for Cochrane Reviews
  • Sharing best practices regarding dissemination of evidence
  • Deciphering and using the evidence
  • Sharing experiences and networking
