The Cochrane Iberoamérica Network extends their condolences to family and friends for the recent death of Patricia Caballero. Patricia was the Director of the Associated Cochrane Center of Peru hosted at the National Institute of Health of Peru. Patricia was a specialist in Infectious and Tropical Disease Medicine, held a master's degree in Public Health and Health Services Management, and was a senior professor at the Faculty of Medicine of the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos. She was also a member of the research groups on tuberculosis and sexually transmitted infections and was the coordinator of the Unit for Analysis and Generation of Evidence in Public Health. Patricia will be remembered dearly as a caring colleague and for her passion for evidence-based healthcare.
