The National Library of Medicine (NLM) hosted a webinar that highlighted the work of several international organizations as part of Humanitarian Evidence Week (HEW) 2018. Ben Heaven Taylor, CEO, Evidence Aid, introduced their work in providing access to evidence-based information on interventions during disasters.
Caroline de Brun, Knowledge and Evidence Specialist, Public Health England (PHE), discussed the PHE collaboration with Evidence Aid and Healthcare Information For All to investigate the role of libraries in supporting teams working in disaster zones, by helping them find and use evidence. Her presentation looked at the outputs from that collaboration, and described the work that has followed on, leading to the launch of an International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) Evidence For Global and Disaster Health Special Interest Group.
