World Evidence-Based Healthcare Day is celebrated on 20 October each year. It is a global programme that raises awareness of the need for better evidence to inform healthcare policy, practise and decision making in order to enhance health outcomes globally. It is an opportunity to engage in the dialogue on global trends and challenges, but also to celebrate the importance of the work of committed researchers , policy makers and health practitioners in enhancing health outcomes for individuals and organisations worldwide. 

Owing to the increased availability of digital information, better educated patients, the adoption of emerging technology, increased healthcare costs, complex and adaptive health systems and ageing populations, the need and demand for EBHC continues to expand quickly. Moreover, emerging technology and access to digital information pose their own challenges, including the attempt to make sense of vast quantities of information and the rapid dissemination of disinformation, rendering ever more critical the task of providing and acting on credible evidence.

The value of using the best available evidence was emphasized by COVID-19 this year. Organizations and individuals will share their perspectives on the effects of their work in EBHC in all environments for the inaugural World Evidence-Based Healthcare Day in 2020, sharing milestones, lessons learned and suggestions for future study and practise. It is now generally accepted that healthcare practise, policy and decision-making should be focused on, or guided by, rigorous scientific data, almost 30 years after evidence-based medicine gained momentum in the early 1990’s. Evidence-based healthcare (EBHC) is a global trend in 2020, with hundreds of organisations and tens of thousands of citizens working relentlessly to develop EBHC’s research and practise for the same objective.
