66 World Health Assembly - WHO EVIPNet technical support in evidence-informed policy-making in Member States
Session organized by the delegation of Burkina Faso and the WHO Secretariat.
EVIPNet is mostly the work of Member States. WHO promotes and provides technical support. We will hear about its usefulness in policy-making from participating Member States. Exists because Member States asked us to support Ministries of Health to promote policy-making informed by the best available scientific evidence.
