A branch of the Cochrane Collaboration was founded in Croatia at the University of Split School of Medicine in 2008 with the aim of promoting evidence-based medicine (EBM) and systematic reviews in Croatia and the region. In 2017, Cochrane Croatia became an independent Cochrane Center, the only such center in the South-East of Europe.
Cochrane Croatia conducts numerous activities. A Croatian Cochrane Symposium is organized each year in Split, Croatia. Science popularization projects, funded by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport, have enabled Cochrane Croatia to organise numerous educational activities for, patient groups, journalists, journalism students, health professionals and the lay public. Since 2013 Cochrane Croatia has been translating Plain Language Summaries (PLSs) of Cochrane Systematic Reviews; in May 2017 there were 2500 translated PLSs. Cochrane Croatia is actively encouraging the introduction of EBM principles into the curriculum for the formal education of healthcare professionals.
Cochrane Croatia has a network of partners, including professional associations, government institutions and patient organizations from Croatia and the region. Those partners have formally joined Cochrane Croatia in promoting EBM.
The number of Cochrane authors and Cochrane publications from Croatia is continuously increasing, which indicates that Croatian authors are joining international trends in EBM research. Systematic reviews can also be adopted as a model for a PhD thesis.
In its first ten years since it was founded, Cochrane Croatia has achieved significant results in the whole region via promotion of EBM, which is not a simple achievement, given that all individuals affiliated with Cochrane activities in Croatia are volunteers. We hope that the same enthusiasm and progress will be sustained in the future.
