Review groups and fields

Cochrane is based on the work the review groups, whose task is to produce systematic reviews that are then disseminated through the Cochrane Library, and the fields, which coordinate the groups' work , raise awareness of the need and importance of systematic reviews, and promote the preparation and maintenance of specialized databases of systematic reviews.
Two groups and two fields are located in Italy.
