Policy and Strategy
HistoryOur history: The Campbell Collaboration grew out of a meeting in London in 1999. Eighty people from four countries attended the meeting, many from our sibling organization The Cochrane Collaboration. Cochrane had been producing systematic reviews in healthcare, since 1994, and many of its members saw the need for an organization that would produce systematic reviews of research evidence on the effectiveness of social interventions.
The Campbell Collaboration has partnerships with a number of organizations, to encourage evidence-based policy formulation and to support the production of systematic reviews.
The Campbell Collaboration gratefully acknowledges the support of a variety of public and private contributors, including the Norwegian Directorate of Health and the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.
The Campbell Collaboration has a small secretariat in Oslo, Norway and an office in Delhi, India, as well as coordinating groups and a board with members from around the world.
