Guidelines International Network

The Guidelines International Network is an international not-for-profit association of organisations and individuals involved in clinical practice guidelines.

Founded in November 2002, G-I-N has a membership of about 80 national guideline organisation (March 2008) representing 36 countries from all continents - plus WHO.

G-I-N seeks to improve the quality of health care by promoting systematic development of clinical practice guidelines and their application into practice, through supporting international collaboration.
