This year, 2013 is the 20th Anniversary of The Cochrane Collaboration. Celebratory activities will involve looking back at the successes registered and forwards to challenges and opportunities. Over the year a video will be released every two weeks about the history of the Collaboration, how the Cochrane Collaboration works and individuals in the Collaboration. Given MESAU’s interest in research capacity building it may be very useful follow these celebratory activities every two weeks. The first video providing an overview of the last 20 years was released:: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Ji-wsSfQH0.
