McMaster Health Forum Webinars


McMaster Health Forum releases report about its ten years of supporting evidence-informed policy-making.

To celebrate the McMaster Health Forum’s 10th Anniversary, they’ve just released a report that looks back at their many accomplishments since being launched in 2009. Over the past decade, the Forum has harnessed research evidence, citizen values and stakeholder insights to help strengthen health systems and get the right programs, services and products to the people who need them. Through Forum+ they’re now broadening their work to include social systems and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The report looks back on the Forum’s growth and impact and thanks their partners and supporters. The report highlights the Forum’s accomplishments in:

  • supporting evidence-informed policy (EIP) about health and social systems in Canada

  • founding and enabling partnerships that support EIP about health systems internationally

  • founding and enabling partnerships that support EIP about the SDGs in Canada and internationally
