Cochrane African Network (CAN)

CAN is a network of sub-Saharan African regional hubs (West, Francophone, Southern and Eastern Africa) managed by experienced Cochrane Review contributors. CAN is an innovative, African-led  response to the need to increase the use of evidence in Africa and the recognition that where disease burden and health system challenges are greatest, the need for evidence to support decision-making and resource use is most critical. CAN aims to increase the use of Cochrane evidence to inform healthcare decision-making in the sub-Saharan region by supporting the production of high-quality reviews, making relevant evidence accessible; advocating for evidence; and, building a sustainable network.
