Our Mission

We at the Cochrane Japan 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. Cochrane Japan was established in 2014 at the National Center for Child Health and Development (NCCHD) in Tokyo, Japan, initially as the Japan Branch of the Australasian Cochrane Centre, and is under the leadership of Dr Rintaro Mori, Director of the Department of Health Policy at the NCCHD.
