The Cochrane Collaboration (CC) is an international initiative to develop systematic reviews about the effectiveness of health interventions, in 2012 involving more than 28,000 researchers and healthcare professionals from over 100 countries. It is a World Health Organization’s member. This work aims at exploring and identifying the public health topics which the CC has focused on. This descriptive analysis should be key in addressing and expanding Italian participation in the Cochrane research network. We read and analyzed web pages of CC, Cochrane Groups, Cochrane editors and affiliated institutions, and interviewed some editors during the last Cochrane Colloquium meetings. The study found that CC is targeted at many topics in public health fields, but some emblematic areas of Italian research, such as healthcare-associated infections and issues of environmental health, are not present and might represent opportunities for Italian groups.
