What do we do?
Cochrane exists so that healthcare decisions get better.
During the past 20 years, Cochrane has helped to transform the way health decisions are made.
We gather and summarize the best evidence from research to help you make informed choices about treatment.
Who is Cochrane for?
Cochrane is for anyone who is interested in using high-quality information to make health decisions. Whether you are a doctor or nurse, patient or carer, researcher or funder, Cochrane evidence provides a powerful tool to enhance your healthcare knowledge and decision making.
Everyone has a role to play so please get involved.
Who are we?
We are a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health.
Cochrane contributors – 37,000 from more than 130 countries – work together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Many of our contributors are world leaders in their fields – medicine, health policy, research methodology, or consumer advocacy – and our groups are situated in some of the world’s most respected academic and medical institutions.

Our work is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information.
