The Cochrane Colloquium is an annual event,  bringing people together from around the world to discuss research into important global health questions and promote evidence-informed health care.  This year the theme is ‘Embracing diversity'. 

The 2019 colloquium will be held in Santiago, the capital city of Chile. This country is known as "The long and narrow country at the end of the world". Legend says that after the creation of the world God scraped the leftovers behind the last mountain range (The Andes) and here they are: magnificent volcanoes, misty rainforests, sun baked deserts and windswept natural grasslands; ice blue glaciers and wild rivers, hot springs and beautiful endless beaches. No other country combines so many contrasts in landscapes and climate zones as Chile. Lose yourself in the hilly port city of Valparaiso and discover an intense, atmospheric palette of colors and flavors. Then relax and cool off in the Pacific ocean at one of the beautiful nearby beaches, such as Viña del Mar or Reñaca. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the valleys and vineyards where Chile’s talented enologists make some of the world’s best red and white wines!

Santiago, city of the meeting, also has its charm, it's a multi-faceted capital, with its fine parks and numerous sporting and cultural activities. You’ll enjoy fabulous food in the city’s many and varied restaurants, as well as a thriving nightlife scene. The city’s diversity shines through in its many contrasting neighborhoods. Set out to explore the city streets and you’ll discover beautiful and original art galleries, design shops and handicraft markets, as well as a great selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. Night owls can enjoy a taste of lively Latino nightlife in hip Bellavista!
