Over the past 20 years there has been a concerted effort to use reliable evidence in making decisions about health care. The Effective Health Care Research Consortium (EHCRC) aims to improve the evidence base and ensure its dissemination. The EHCRC helps to ensure that healthcare problems relevant to low- and middle-income countries are addressed, and that people living in these countries are part of the process.
