DHHS designates Brown as national site for Cochrane Collaboration

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Brown University recently became the U.S. headquarters for the Cochrane Collaboration, a global network that promotes evidence-based healthcare for the purpose of enabling patients and doctors make informed decisions about treatment and care.

Called the U.S. Cochrane Center, the site at Brown University was established with a five-year, $2.3-million grant from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).

The award facilitates the merger of the Cochrane Collaboration in the United States from three regional coordinating centers The New England Cochrane Center of Boston, The New England Cochrane Center at Providence, and the San Francisco Cochrane Center into a single center.
