Help improve the quality of health-related evidence online by participating in the Cochrane-Wikipedia Project!
Cochrane and Wikipedia are working together to share high-quality health-related evidence with a broad audience.
-There are over 32,000 health-related articles in English Wikipedia.
-Approximately 3400 Cochrane Reviews are cited as high-level evidence within these Wikipedia articles.
-There are approximately 4000 Cochrane reviews not yet used in Wikipedia articles.
