It was another great year for content produced by Evidence Network experts and authors.  We created more than 150 original op-eds, podcasts, videos, posters and backgrounders on a wide range of health policy issues for publication in the mainstream media.

Our original content was picked up widely (reprinted almost 900 times in 2015) in every major media outlet across the country – from dozens of pieces published in the Globe and Mail, Toronto Star, National Post, La Presse and Le Devoir alone – to multiple publications in every big city paper in the country, reprinted widely again in local, niche and online media.

On our own website, where we house all of our content with a Creative Commons license for easy re-printing, the story was slightly different.  Our still timely back catalogue content competed fiercely with our new 2015 material to give us a strong but eclectic range of Canadian health policy content in English and French.

We’ve drawn together our most popular titles from 2015, below.  Happy Reading!
