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.
The UK Cochrane Centre is a regional Cochrane Centre within The Cochrane Collaboration (Click here to be taken to the Collaboration's website), supporting Cochrane activities in the UK. It is largely supported by the UK Government through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). You can find out more about the activities we support by clicking on the following links:
- The Learn + Teach Programme is the learning & development programme of work for UK & Ireland-based Cochrane contributors and advocates
- The Engagement Programme, communicating the latest evidence to our networks on social media and beyond. You can also view our 2013/14 social media report, here.
