Cochrane Switzerland

Who is Cochrane Switzerland? 

Cochrane Switzerland is a geographical group of the international organisation known as the 'Cochrane Collaboration' ('Cochrane' for short). Cochrane Switzerland was founded in 2010 and has been integrated into the Centre universitaire de médecine générale et santé publique (Unisanté) in Lausanne since 2019. 

We are the point of contact for questions regarding the preparation and use of Cochrane Reviews and other evidence syntheses in Switzerland. 

We do not accept funding for our work from commercial or other conflict of interest sources. This is a Cochrane policy to produce independent and reliable information and to work free from such influences.

You can find information on our current activities in our annual reports.

There are two other registered Cochrane groups in Switzerland: Cochrane Insurance Medicine at the University Hospital Basel and Cochrane Complementary Medicine Switzerland at the Institute for Complementary and Integrative Medicine, University of Zurich.

In addition, many researchers and health professionals in Switzerland and employees of international organisations contribute to Cochrane's work as authors.
