About Cochrane Ireland

Sharing Health Evidence You Can Trust

Cochrane  is a global independent network of health practitioners, researchers, patient advocates and others, responding to the challenge of making the vast amounts of evidence generated through research useful for informing decisions about health. We are a not-for-profit organisation with collaborators from 120 countries working together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest.

Cochrane Ireland aims to promote the use of Cochrane evidence across the island of Ireland and to support engagement with Cochrane at all levels. This initiative is being led by Dónal O’Mathúna, PhD, appointed as Convenor of Cochrane Ireland in 2014. This post is funded jointly by the Health Research Board in the Republic of Ireland and the HSC Research & Development Division, Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland.
