Evidence-based health policy emphasizes formulating health policies and regulations based on "evidence". It is a more scientific and objective decision-making model, which is conducive to improving the scientific nature, pertinence and effectiveness of policies and promoting the rational allocation of health resources. On the basis of analyzing the basic connotation, methods and practices, and research status of evidence-based health policy, this article proposes issues and countermeasures for the development of evidence-based health policy. The study believes that: clarify the cognitive fallacies of evidence-based health policies ; master health policy research methods and improve the quality of evidence; strengthen the awareness of evidence-based decision-making and pay attention to the practice of evidence-based health policies; promote disciplinary integration, exchanges and cooperation, and scientifically transform research evidence, etc. It is a top priority for the development of evidence-based health policies in our country.
