With this new set-up the activities were extended to the whole of Switzerland in three national languages. Cochrane Switzerland is based at the Institut universitaire de médecine sociale et préventive (IUMSP) in Lausanne. The IUMSP is part of the University hospital (CHUV) and of the University of Lausanne (UNIL). Cochrane Switzerland works with Cochrane centres based in the neighbouring countries, France, Germany, Italy, and Austria.
