The CIDG is funded by UKaid from the UK Government Department for International Development through the Effective Health Care Research Consortium (EHCRC) based at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine.
The EHCRC supports Partners in China, India, Kenya, Nigeria, Norway,the Philippines, and South Africa. The Partners' remit includes training and supporting authors to prepare Cochrane Reviews, and promoting evidence-based decisions in the health sector.
Authors are occasionally supported by their institution or other source to prepare CIDG Cochrane Reviews.
CIDG Reviews are occasionally commissioned by external organizations, such as the World Health Organization.
Details on the sources of support for individual reviews are specified in each published Cochrane Review.
