About the Cochrane Library
The Cochrane Collaboration is a not-for-profit and independent organisation dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare interventions readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions in over fifty topic areas and makes them available as The Cochrane Library. In 2002, Ireland became the first country to provide free national access to the Cochrane Library, an initiative co-funded by the Health Research Board (HRB) and the Research and Development Office (RDO) in Northern Ireland. In addition to providing and promoting free national access, the HRB and RDO have developed an annual series of training courses in conjunction with the UK Cochrane Centre and a fellowship scheme to allow health professionals, researchers and policy makers protected time to develop their capacity in conducting systematic reviews.
