Cochrane is a collaboration whose strength is in its diversity and international reach. The Governing Board wants to make sure this is reflected in its own membership and so for this election, one of the two places available is restricted to a Cochrane Member who is a citizen or resident of a Lower- and-Middle-Income Country or Territory. The other place is available to anyone who is a Cochrane Member (including citizens or residents of LMICs).

Candidates stand for election by their fellow Cochrane Members. All Cochrane Members are encouraged to promote the elections, although canvassing for specific candidates is not allowed. You can find out more on the Promoting & Communicating page of this website. 

Voting will open on Monday 10 August and close on Friday 21 August 2020. Voting instructions will be sent to all members on 10 August.

You are invited to review the Candidate Statements before placing your vote. For this election, the Governing Board is especially seeking candidates who have one or more of the following areas of expertise, in order to complement those of existing Board members:

  • Knowledge translation or science/health communication
  • Evidence-informed policy making
  • Legal experience
  • Advocacy
  • Open Access to research outputs 

For more information, please see Board's electoral and appointment procedure. Questions about any aspects of this process, or concerns about a candidate’s eligibility, can be raised with Lucie Binder, Head of Governance & Strategy, and Electoral Officer for this election at elections@cochrane.org.
