Cochrane Collaboration Systematic reviews


In November 2015, Carissa Etienne (Director of the Pan American Health Organization - PAHO) and Mark Wilson (CEO Cochrane) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to strengthen collaboration in the Americas. Cochrane is a global independent network of 37,000 researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health from more than 130 countries.
The MoU focuses on the following objectives:

  • align the production of Cochrane systematic reviews to PAHO's health priorities;
  • strengthen capacity for evidence-based decision making in the region; and
  • strengthen knowledge translation activities.
