USM Cochrane Coordinating Centre

What is Cochrane?
Cochrane is an international not-for-profit organisation, which aims to help people make well-informed decisions about healthcare by preparing, maintaining and promoting the accessibility of systematic reviews of the effects of health care interventions.
Worldwide, the Cochrane Collaboration has over 130,000 people in more than 130 countries contributing in some way, whether as authors, editors, peer referees, etc. Almost all these people are volunteers. We operate in a much decentralised structure. We have a small Secretariat in Oxford and an Editor in Chief’s office in London, but the majority of the work of the Collaboration is done by Cochrane Review Groups.
The Cochrane activities in Australasia and South East Asia are coordinated by Cochrane Australia. The coordinating centre in Malaysia is the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and University College Dublin Malaysia Campus. Universiti Sains Malaysia is one of the affiliate centres who work together locally and is recognised by Cochrane for the work that we do.
Our aims are:
  1. To promote Cochrane and its work
  2. To support and develop the community of Cochrane members
  3. To disseminate Cochrane reviews locally based on stakeholder networks, the media and other communications channels.
