Funding and support

Funding for Cochrane Reviews

Funding is not provided by the Cochrane Collaboration for individuals to produce systematic reviews. Consequently reviews are produced by volunteer authors or those who have obtained funding through research or project grants. If your institution or organisation would like to support the production of a Cochrane review please contact us at cochrane@vichealth.vic.gov.au

A Directory of Grants and Fellowships in the Global Health Sciences is displayed on  http://www.fic.nih.gov/funding/directory_fellowships.htm 
(some grants may be relevant to those looking to undertake a Cochrane review).

Funding of the CPHG


Funding for the coordination and administration of the CPHG is currently provided by VicHealth* and NHMRC (previously Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing) with the funding administered by The McCaughey Centre, VicHealth Centre for the Promotion of Mental Health and Community Wellbeing, School of Population Health, University of Melbourne.

Partnerships and Collaborations


The CPHG is interested in supporting and encouraging new hubs and satellites to build capacity in systematic reviews, evidence and public health decision making, and knowledge translation for public health.  Relationships with several organisation across the globe are in development and we look forward to announcing formal partnerships in the future.  We encourage any organisation with an interest in facilitating the production of Cochrane reviews in public health in their region to contact us.
