Trust the Evidence: Professor Mike Clarke & Laura Merson in conversation

As part of Humanitarian Evidence Week Carl Heneghan, Director of the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine,  interviewed Mike Clarke, Queen’s University Belfast and Evidence Aid and Laura Merson, Associate Director of the Infectious Diseases Data Observatory, University of Oxford.

The podcast discusses why we need evidence in humanitarian disasters, what are some of the examples where evidence has made a difference and what are some of the barriers to the development of evidence and its use on the ground in disaster settings.


HEW2017 is an initiative led by Evidence Aid, in collaboration with the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine to promote a more evidence-based approach together with over twenty organisations. During the HEW these organisations will provide webinars, blogs and participate in debates to highlight topics related to generation, use and dissemination of evidence in the humanitarian sector, details of which you can be found here
