This database provides easy access to a number of resources selected for their relevance
to decision-making on public health, health care and health-system policy in the
WHO European Region.
It includes select organizations with a mandate to promote the use of research evidence
in health policy or in health technology assessment. For each, HEN provides a description
of its mission and the type of information offered on its web site or in hard copy.
This is accompanied by a selection of the material available (such as publications,
databases and expert networks), organized by health topic* as defined by WHO/Europe.
Information can be viewed by organization or through the search function, using
one of the adjacent tabs above. (Last updated August 2013.)
The WHO/Europe web site offers more information about the work of HEN (http://www.euro.who.int/en/what-we-do/data-and-evidence/evidence-informed-policy-making/health-evidence-network-hen).
* The WHO health topics used in this database relate to the specific resources
listed (e.g. publications, reports) and do not necessarily indicate that the organization
has a dedicated mandate in the health topic area itself.
