Humanitarian Evidence Week 2018

2 August, 2018

Humanitarian Evidence Week 2018 (HEW2018) is an initiative led by Evidence Aid, in collaboration with the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, University of Oxford, to promote a more evidence-based approach together with many other organisations. During the HEW organisations provide webinars, blogs and participate in debates to highlight topics related to generation, use and dissemination of evidence in the humanitarian sector.

How to contribute

If you feel you or your organisation is addressing an issue worthy of a wider audience and you would like to contribute a blog or event (actual or online), please get in touch with Claire Allen, Operations Manager We would like as many people to contribute and take part as possible, so there is no registration fee and most (although not quite all) events are free of charge!

Details of the week can be found on our web page ( alongside a timeline of activities – which will be updated as events are added.

With my best wishes,
