PAHO/WHO wants to inspire Cochrane reviewers to address key public health and health systems research questions through the development of systematic reviews that provide helpful conclusions, have robust methods, and address topics deemed as a priority to the governments of the Americas. These key questions motivated the following prizes to recognize systematic reviews and protocols relevant to the Health Agenda for the Americas 2008-2017. Prizes were announced during the Cochrane-Campbell Colloquium in Keystone, Colorado. Congratulations to all finalists and awardees of this prize. Link to article.
