The Cochrane Public Health Group (CPHG) aims to work with contributors to produce and publish Cochrane reviews of the effects of population-level public health interventions directed at the social determinants of health. The core CPHG editorial team is part of Public Health Insight, based at the University of Melbourne. Together with networks and locations in Europe and South Asia, we train, support and build the capacity of author teams locally and internationally. Our reviews cover a broad range of topic, from housing and the built environment to income distribution and finacial interventions. We direct review authors to resources and guidance to help them conduct their reviews. We are also involved in the production of a wide range of publications related to Cochrane review methodology and evidence generation.
