Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. We produce ‘systematic reviews’ which bring together and summarize the best available evidence from research, to help inform decisions about health.
Cochrane is a not-for-profit organization with collaborators from more than 130 countries working together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest.
