Abstract / Description

On World Evidence-Based Healthcare Day 2023, we celebrate the importance of ‘evidence and global health equity’. The aim of this global initiative is to raise awareness of the need for better evidence to inform healthcare policy, practice and decision-making to improve health outcomes globally. Evidence-based healthcare relies strongly on rigorous research and data to guide decisions, and evidence ecosystems are the backbone of equitable health policies, systems and services. In the pursuit of health equity, we must also recognise the valuable role that art can play in the evidence ecosystem. This blog explores the intersection of art, health equity and evidence-based healthcare, highlighting how using art can bridge gaps, foster inclusivity and contribute to the evidence ecosystem.
