The Evaluation Centre is very pleased to support the Pan American Health Organization’s webinar titled, Towards an Ecology of Evidence to Act on Inequities, on Thursday, December 9th, 2021, 11:30 am – 1:00 pm EST. This is the final webinar of a three-part series titled, Making Evaluations Matter to Address Inequities, organized by the Health Promotion and Social Determinants Unit of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).


The webinar will have simultaneous interpretation in Spanish, English and Portuguese. 


This webinar will focus on the ecology of evidence needed to act on inequities. The varieties of evidence that an evaluation will need to generate and how best to design such a system of evaluation will be the focus of this webinar.

  • Diane Walter, Executive Director, Margaret’s Housing and Community Support Services, Toronto, Canada 
  • Trish Newport, Deputy Manager, Emergency Response, Doctors without Borders/Medecins Sans Frontières

The discussant for this session will be Ray Pawson, professor emeritus of Social Research Methodology at the University of Leeds and the primary developer of Realist Evaluation. 


The session will be facilitated by Sanjeev Sridharan, founding director of the Evaluation Centre for Complex Health Interventions at the University of Toronto and Country Lead, Learning Systems and Systems Evaluation at the India Country Office of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 


The relationship between different elements of an ecology of evidence will be highlighted through examples of addressing maternal health in India, health promotion in Scotland, responding to homelessness in Canada, and responding to Ebola in Congo. The relationship between the ecology of evidence to the social determinants of health will be discussed.
