About the CEBHC

The CEBHC is a beacon on the African continent in advancing evidence-based health care at a local and increasingly through its collaborations on a more global scale. In a world where the lines between fact, fiction, myth and fake news are blurred, driven largely by internet fabrications, the raison d’etre for the endeavours of the Centre of Evidenced-based Health Care has become a compelling necessity.
