Bahrain Branch (UKCC) of the Cochrane


The Yerevan Declaration which concluded the recent successful EBM conference at the Ministry of Health, National Institute of Health (NIH) and at the Republican Scientific Medical Library (RSML) in Armenia, highlighted the need for an increased involvement with international organizations such as the Cochrane Collaboration. We are pleased to announce that following discussions with the Director of the Bahrain Branch (UKCC) of the Cochrane Collaboration Prof. Zbys Fedorowich, the RSML has now entered into a partnership arrangement with the Branch. We hope that through this alliance we will be able to increase our involvement with the Cochrane Collaboration and in particular act as a focal point for Cochrane Collaboration activity within Armenia and the surrounding region.

A Cochrane review team based at the Yerevan State Medical University has just started working on a review "Antioxidant micronutrients for lung disease in cystic fibrosis" which we hope will encourage other researchers to undertake a Cochrane review.
