Being global and diverse has always been an important part of Cochrane. Currently, our global community of over 100,000 members and supporters come from over 130 countries worldwide. Our Principles highlight the importance of diversity and inclusion within the organization through the objectives Enabling Wide Participation, Promoting Access and Striving for Relevance and this is further reinforced by inclusion in our Strategy for Change.
