About us

Cochrane is an international not-for-profit and independent organization, dedicated to supporting evidence-informed decision making about health and health care globally. It gathers, synthesizes and disseminates up to date research evidence of health care in the form of systematic reviews and other forms of synthesized evidence. 

Cochrane Kenya is a geographical affiliate of the global Cochrane collaboration. It is also part of Cochrane Africa, a regional, independent Cochrane network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health in Africa. Cochrane Kenya will promote evidence-informed decision making in health care across East African region by supporting and training new authors of Cochrane Reviews, as well as working with clinicians, professional associations, policy makers, patients, and the media to encourage the dissemination and use of synthesized or summarized evidence.
