Evidence-based guidelines

Elie Akl and Andrea Darzi participated in the EMRO Expert Consultation on Evidence-Based Guideline Development & Adaptation in the Eastern Mediterranean Region. An expert consultation on evidence-based guideline development and adaptation was organized at the Regional Office in Cairo, Egypt, from 18 to 19 November 2015. The consultation was in line with one of WHO’s core functions, which is the development of evidence-based guidelines which can guide health policy-makers, health care practitioners and users in making informed health decisions based on research findings and consensus among experts taking into account the local contexts and available resources.
