The Cochrane Collaboration
The Cochrane Collaboration is an international, independent, not-for-profit organisation of over 28,000 contributors from more than 100 countries, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care readily available worldwide.
Cochrane contributors work together to produce systematic reviews of healthcare interventions, known as Cochrane Reviews, which are published online in The Cochrane Library. Cochrane Reviews are intended to help providers, practitioners, and patients make informed decisions about health care and are the most comprehensive, reliable, and relevant source of evidence on which to base these decisions.
The United States Cochrane Center
The United States Cochrane Center (USCC) is one of the 12 centers around the world that facilitate the work of The Cochrane Collaboration. Centers share responsibility for helping to coordinate and support members of the collaboration in areas such as training, and each center promotes objectives of the Collaboration in its region. The USCC is dedicated to promoting awareness of The Cochrane Collaboration and its objectives and access to The Cochrane Library in the United States.
A special mission of the USCC is to support Consumers United for Evidence-based Healthcare (CUE), a partnership with health and consumer advocacy organizations interested in integrating understanding and interpretation of evidence-based healthcare into their advocacy activities, strengthening the voice of consumers in healthcare research, and providing leadership in these areas.

The Campbell Collaboration
The Campbell Collaboration is an international research network that produces systematic reviews of the effects of social interventions. Campbell is based on voluntary cooperation among researchers of a variety of backgrounds. Campbell's strategic and policy making body is the Steering Group.
Campbell Coordinating Groups are responsible for the production, scientific merit, and relevance of its systematic reviews, providing editorial services and support to review authors. Each Coordinating Group has two representatives on the Steering Group. Campbell's International Secretariat is located in Oslo and hosted by the Norwegian Knowledge Centre for the Health Services. Head Office supports all aspects of Campbell's work, including the production of systematic reviews, internal and external communication, fundraising, and arrangements for the Annual Colloquium and other events.
