The issue of evidence for decision-making, including formal policy-making and public health policy, has increased rapidly in prominence during the past few years. The term “evidence-based” was first used in health care in 1992, when Sackett and others coined the term “evidence-based medicine” (42). More recently, many have asked if public health activities are based on evidence (2;8;13;19;30).
