Our Mission

We at the Japan Branch of the Australasian Cochrane Centre are dedicated to promoting evidence-based decision-making in healthcare in Japan by producing accurate, up-to-date Cochrane reviews, and providing support and training to new authors of Cochrane reviews. The Branch was founded in February 2014 and follows the establishment of the Satellite of the Cochrane Pregnancy and Childbirth Group (PCG) in April 2013. Both the Branch and the Satellite are based at the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD) in Tokyo, Japan.
