Audience at WISH

Our Centre was established to promote evidence-based policy-making around the world. It’s our aim to help influence healthcare policy globally. Our partnerships – both local and international – ensure that our reach and impact go beyond borders, helping transform policy for the benefit of people and the systems that serve their health and wellbeing.

Our work

We’re dedicated to using evidence and education to change global health policy for the better. We do this by uniting world-leading experts and policy-makers to tackle real-world health problems; building international collaborations; promoting learning and support; and generating and spreading evidence-based knowledge on a range of important health issues.

Our work


We’re a partner of the World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH), a global community that’s dedicated to capturing and disseminating the best evidence-based ideas and practices in global healthcare.

Since its inception in 2013, WISH has held five summits.  These events unite thousands of global health leaders and experts across the globe, , who together share knowledge, evidence and best practice to transform healthcare and guide policy.

WISH focuses on some of the most pressing and serious global health challenges facing governments, health systems and populations alike. From mental health to climate change, we work together to rise to the evolving healthcare issues of today, exposing challenges and proposing evidence-based solutions to solve them. To date, WISH has published over 40 reports that set out key recommendations to make positive change in these areas of need.

Leading Health Systems Network

Our Leading Health Systems Network (LHSN) joins healthcare leaders and organisations who are dedicated to improving the delivery of healthcare by using resources in the most effective and efficient way. This expanding network has grown a global community of like-minded peers who share their ideas, practices and strategies to improve healthcare and overcome challenges in their field.

Alongside producing evidence-based reports on topics of interest with a view to influencing policy, the LHSN promotes learning and knowledge sharing through its webinar series. We also offer evidence-based tools to help make healthcare safer, like our hospital checklist for antimicrobial stewardship and our ‘Essentials of Cybersecurity for Healthcare Organisations (ECHO)’ framework.
