Meet the Editors: a year on

Wednesday, 29 Mar 2017

It's been a year since we launched the news feature 'Meet the Editors' on the CIDG and EHCRC websites, and what a year it's been! Over the 12 months we've been delighted to introduce you to nine CIDG Editors (click on their names to read their 'Meet the Editor' interviews):

Row 1 (L-R): Jimee HwangHasifa BukirwaMical PaulJoseph Okebe, and Karen Steingart
Row 2 (L-R): Lawrence MbuagbawHellen GelbandCharles Shey Wiysonge, and Yemisi Takwoingi

In addition, we've also expanded this feature to enable readers to meet other members of the CIDG team, including our Information Specialist, Vittoria Lutje, and Cochrane author, Mwaka Athuman.

The CIDG editorial base is located at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in Liverpool, UK. The CIDG is led by Professor Paul Garner (Co-ordinating Editor) and Anne-Marie Stephani (Managing Editor). Over 600 authors from some 52 countries contribute to the preparation of the Cochrane Reviews. They are supported by an international team of Editors, each with topic or methodological expertise. 

The CIDG’s main areas of work are on determination of the effects of interventions on the prevention or treatment infectious diseases of relevance to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, and neglected tropical diseases. The aims of the CIDG are to impact on policy and research in tropical diseases through the production of high quality and relevant systematic reviews, and to lead developments in review quality improvement and effective dissemination of findings.

We thank our featured Editors, Information Specialist, and Cochrane author for their contributions to this article series.

We are excited to introduce you to more CIDG members in 2017!

Best wishes,

The CIDG editorial team
