Our vision

Vision for a sustainable healthcare

Overuse of medical diagnostics and treatments are threatening the health of individuals and poses challenges for health system sustainability all around the world. The situation is urgent and the need for novel approaches to tackle these issues is increasingly recognised. An intensified focus on projects and initiatives that cross the traditional boundaries between the different stakeholders in the evidence chain is required.

Our vision is to develop a global network for collaboration to more closely integrate the links in the evidence chain, with a renewed focus on tackling medical excess and forging more sustainability within healthcare. We aim to collaborate with partners within and beyond Cochrane on activities ranging from short-term research projects to longer term reform initiatives. Our primary goals are enhancing the relevance of primary research and evidence synthesis to tackle medical excess and increase the use of that evidence to enable more sustainable healthcare.
