Are you committed to using evidence to improve lives? Are you involved in creating policies, designing programs or changing behaviours to create sustainable change in Australia or worldwide?

The Global Evidence and Implementation Summit will help you access, understand, synthesis and use evidence better. It will look at what works and why, and how to use evidence to design stronger programs, policies and practices that are contextually appropriate.

Drawing on real-world examples, our experts will also discuss what strategies are required to achieve scalability and sustainability, and how to evaluate results. Bringing together more than 600 delegates from 30 countries, this premier global summit will be invaluable learning and networking opportunity for all those committed to using evidence for stronger communities globally.
