The Cochrane COVID Rapid Reviews website and Question Bank have three main objectives:

  1. To list reviews that are underway in Cochrane and elsewhere to help front-line medical staff, policy makers, and consumers find the answers they need.
  2. To reduce duplication of effort by showing researchers where reviews are being addressed by other teams, and maintaining a list of questions submitted by stakeholders.
  3. To support the production of high-quality rapid reviews by providing protocol and review templates and methods guidance.
