Building Momentum:
Advocacy Resources for Societies

Cochrane Collaboration


Cochrane is a global independent network of researchers, professionals, patients, carers, and people interested in health. Cochrane produces reviews which study the best available evidence generated through research and make it easier to inform decisions about health. These are called systematic reviews.

Cochrane is a not-for profit organization with collaborators from more than 130 countries working together to produce credible, accessible health information that is free from commercial sponsorship and other conflicts of interest. Our work is recognized as representing an international gold standard for high quality, trusted information.


As an official partner of the global March movement, Cochrane encourages our contributors and colleagues to get involved. We’ve pulled together a list of ideas and resources to engage and to continue to build on this movement after April 22.

Reach out to organizers of your local March

Let them know that you work with an official partner organization, and offer to help get involved. Are you or a Cochrane colleague in your area willing to speak publicly about the key role that science plays in society and how it affects critical issues in your region? Let them know!

At the DC March, Cochrane US has developed an interactive exercise that compares chocolate bars

to help teach people to understand the principles of randomized trial design. Check out our website for how-to guides about how these kinds of interactive activities can support the movement.

Tell us what’s important where you are

March organizers are gathering statements from marchers all over the world about why they’re marching and what the important issues are in their regions. Share yours! Follow #MarchforScience on Twitter for the latest updates.

Share your slogans and signs

We’ve started a Pinterest board with signs for carrying at the March share links that you’d like to add with us and we’ll include a selection. These slogans can be inspiring even after the March, giving us the drive to continue to be involved and engaged.
