Cochrane Public Health is committed to making a difference to health inequalities and improving the quality and access to public health evidence for decision making and knowledge translation. Our reviews focus on topics that address health outcomes at the population level, helping government and non-government agencies achieve health, wellbeing, learning and social outcomes.
We prioritise reviews addressing the structural and social determinants of health, those addressing non-communicable disease risks, and strategies to improve the translation of public health interventions into policy and practice. Reviews of interventions operating at the level of community, systems, policy, legislation and regulation and those that operate outside of the health service system, such as education, transport, the built environment, agriculture, child care and social services are Cochrane Public Health priorities.
A new chapter for Cochrane
Cochrane has embarked on an important change programme to transform the way we produce the high-quality, independent and timely evidence. The new model is designed to ensure Cochrane remains viable, sustainable, and focused on the greatest global health and care challenges now and into the future. As part of the new model we are implementing a Central Editorial Service to streamline the editorial process.
