Funding and support

The Cochrane Skin Group is part of the international collaboration Cochrane, an independent not-for-profit consortium dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of health care.

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the largest single funder of this Cochrane Review Group.


We thank the NHS Executive Trent Region Research and Development Programme's infrastructure support which enabled the Skin Group to start in 1997, and also the NHS Wales Office of Research & Development, and the British Association of Dermatologists for their help in those early days.
