Cochrane Collaboration

The Cochrane Collaboration developed in response to Archie Cochrane's call for systematic, up-to-date reviews of all relevant randomized clinical trials[?] of health care.

Cochrane's suggestion that the methods used to prepare and maintain reviews of controlled trials in pregnancy and childbirth should be applied more widely was taken up by the Research and Development Programme, initiated to support the United Kingdom's National Health Service. Funds were provided to establish a 'Cochrane Centre[?]', to collaborate with others, in the UK and elsewhere, to facilitate systematic reviews of randomized controlled trials across all areas of health care.
