Cochrane Library : Free access in Switzerland

The Swiss Academy of Medical Sciences, complemented by the Federal Office of Public Health and several other institutions, among them medical libraries, have reached an agreement for a national licence which gives access to the Cochrane Library  to all residents in Switzerland. Swiss patients and health care practitioners will now have access to over 6500 published systematic reviews in healthcare interventions.

Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers and people interested in health. The organization gathers and summarizes the best evidence from research to help make informed choices about treatment. The CHUV medical library is at your disposal to answer any question concerning this database, access and use. (contact:­
