Global Strategic Information

Led by Dr. George Rutherford, the Global Strategic Information (GSI) group has had impact in more than 40 countries, strengthening health systems by providing public health leaders, clinicians and policy makers with the knowledge and means to develop strategic information for planning and decision-making. Our efforts are focused on epidemiologic surveillance, monitoring and evaluation of programs, education and training, and rigorous systematic reviews of the scientific literature.

GSI serves as the editorial base of the Cochrane Collaboration’s Review Group on HIV/AIDS, and is internationally recognized as a world leader in the rigorous, evidence-based synthesis of HIV intervention research. This work has informed the development of guidelines and policy statements for many key agencies.

Key components of our work include:
