Cochrane and the Cochrane Iberoamerican Network are delighted to announce the launch of a new Centre in Mexico.
The Mexican Cochrane Centre consists of five Associated Centres located at Culiacán (Sinaloa's Pediatric Hospital), Guadalajara (University of Guadalajara), Mexico City (Mexico's Children Hospital Federico Gómez and Clínica Médica Sur Foundation) and Cuernavaca (National Institute of Public Health).
The Mexican Cochrane Centre will promote evidence-based decision making in health care in Mexico by supporting and training new Mexican authors of Cochrane Reviews, as well as working with clinicians, professional associations, policy-makers, patients, and the media to encourage the dissemination and use of Cochrane evidence.
The Mexican Cochrane Centre is part of Cochrane, a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health. Cochrane works with collaborators from more than 130 countries to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Cochrane’s work is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information.
The Mexican Cochrane Centre will be led by the coordinators of the five Associated Centres, which will offer methodological support, mentoring, and supervision in the country.
The Director of Cochrane Mexico, Giordano Pérez-Gaxiola, says this is a hugely exciting opportunity: “The launch of the Mexican Cochrane Centre is very important, both to Mexico and globally. Producing and increasing the dissemination of the best available information on health care is critical for clinicians and patients everywhere in the world, including Mexico”
Cochrane’s CEO Mark Wilson, warmly welcomed today’s news, “I am delighted we are announcing the Mexican Cochrane Centre which, by working closely together, will deepen and expand the scope, reach, and impact of Cochrane activities on health and healthcare decision making across Mexico. This is also an important announcement for global health research. The Mexican Cochrane Centre will promote recognition of studies conducted and published in Mexico and this will not only simply increase the access of evidence, but also promote sharing of clinical experiences across the country, and the world.”
