Cochrane Ireland is part of Cochrane. Cochrane Ireland supports and seeks to develop activities of the Cochrane Collaboration in the island of Ireland. We do this principally by providing training and support to authors of Cochrane Reviews, working with educators and policy makers, advocating on behalf of Cochrane regionally, and promoting the use and uptake of The Cochrane Library. Cochrane Ireland works in partnership with the UK Cochrane Centre.

Cochrane Ireland is funded by the Health Research Board and HSC Research & Development Division, Pubic Health Agency. We aim to ensure that evidence in the form of systematic reviews underpins policy, practice and decision making, and that systematic reviews are available in formats that patients, healthcare professionals and policy makers can use.
