Systematic Review Training Workshop


Each year, a significant body of knowledge is produced in the domain of healthcare, health policy and clinical practice through the conduct of primary research in Cameroon, Africa and beyond. However, insufficient efforts have been put in place to make this knowledge available to decision-makers in policy, clinical practice and research to inform decision-making. Decision makers on their part are in great need of the best available evidence to inform their decisions that enhance better policies, best practices and life-changing research priority setting.

It is in a bid to fix this knowledge to action gap that The Cameroon Centre for Evidence Based Healthcare (CCEBHC): A Center of Excellence of the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI), University of South Australia, in Collaboration with Health Promotion Alliance Cameroon (HPAC) and the Nkafu Policy Institute is organizing a five days systematic review training workshop (online using the Zoom platform) for research scientists, health professionals and policy makers.
