The Cochrane Tobacco Addiction Group forms part of The Cochrane Collaboration, an international not-for-profit and independent organization, dedicated to making up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of healthcare readily available worldwide. It produces and disseminates systematic reviews of healthcare interventions and promotes the search for evidence in the form of clinical trials and other studies of interventions.
The major product of the Collaboration is the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews which is published quarterly as part of The Cochrane Library.
The Group produces systematic reviews of the evidence on interventions to prevent and treat tobacco addiction. We include interventions for smoking cessation, for preventing uptake, and public policy interventions to reduce smoking prevalence. Our main focus is on smoking but we also cover interventions for smokeless tobacco.
