Health Systems Evidence is an initiative of the McMaster Health Forum.

Health Systems Evidence is supported by a collaboration between the McMaster Health Forum and four partners:
1) Program in Policy Decision-making; 2) Cochrane Canada and its Policy Liaison Office;
3) Health Information Research Unit's McMaster PLUS and McMaster Search Filters; and 4) Rx for Change.

The translations of Health Systems Evidence into languages other than English and French are made possible by a
collaboration between the McMaster Health Forum and five additional partners:
1) WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean and 2) American University of Beirut (for Arabic);
3) Evidence-Based Medicine Center, Lanzhou University (for Chinese);
4) Pan American Health Organization (for Portuguese and Spanish); and 5) WHO Regional Office for Europe (for Russian).
