AbstractAbstract AbstractSummary PDFSupplementary Material
Evidence-based public health (EBPH) is defined as public health decision-making based on current best evidence. Debates about the latent tuberculosis infection control program suggested by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2017 highlight the need to promote EBPH. Three strategies have been proposed, including providing necessary evidence by evaluating policy-evidence gaps; delivering high-quality, relevant, and timely evidence by conducting systematic reviews and adapting public health guidelines; and making value-driven decisions by training and educating public health policymakers.
Korean summary
근거중심 공중보건 (EBPH)는 공중보건영역에서 최신과 최선의 근거에 기반하여 의사결정을 하는 것이다. EBPH를 활성화하기 위해서는 정책-근거 간의 간극을 알아내고, 체계적 고찰을 통한 공중보건지침을 개발하며, 의사결정참여자의 역량을 높이기 위한 교육훈련을 추진하는 것이다.
