Cochrane and Cochrane UK

Cochrane is a global independent network of health practitioners, researchers, patient advocates and others, responding to the challenge of making the vast amounts of evidence generated through research useful for informing decisions about health. We are a not-for-profit organisation with collaborators from 120 countries working together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest.

Cochrane UK (formerly the UK Cochrane Centre) is a regional Cochrane Centre within Cochrane, supporting Cochrane activities in the UK. It is largely supported by the UK Government through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). You can read more on our website here

The story behind the Cochrane logo

This is a really good illustration of why systematic reviews are so important and a reminder of why more than 28,000 people engaged in the work of Cochrane worldwide are committed to producing high quality systematic reviews in all areas of healthcare. You can read about it here on Cochrane’s website.
