Dear Cochrane friends and colleagues,

We hope you are doing well, as this year begins to close, and that this message finds you and your loved ones safe and well.

Organizational and editorial updates

Cochrane Sustainable Healthcare joins forces with the BMJ to explore new ways to make health systems healthier. We’re very happy to share this new podcast series, which looks at initiatives to wind back the medical excess that is causing harm to people and the planet.

Cochrane Connects Recordings. We were so pleased to gather with the Cochrane Community on Tuesday, November 16, 2021. The Community heard updates on Cochrane's approach to Open Access, celebrated the 2021 Prize and Awards winners, and learned about the activities of the Cochrane Climate-Health Working Group. Recordings from the event are now available, and you can also view a summary of event statistics and evaluation survey responses. 

Cochrane seeks a Director of Development. As part of the Central Executive Team (CET) Restructure, we are now looking to recruit our first Director of Development, whose role will be to work with the global community to grow our fundraising income substantially in the coming years. As a member of the executive leadership team, they will lead the Development Directorate and establish a fundraising operation that works collaboratively to deliver significant global income growth. Learn more about this role, and please do share with your networks.

With our best wishes,

Karla Soares-Weiser
Editor in Chief, Cochrane Library

Judith Brodie
