Introduction. After approval by Cochrane Steering Group, Cochrane Rehabilitation has been launched on 16th December 2016. The aim of Cochrane Rehabilitation is to bridge between Cochrane and Rehabilitation stakeholders, systematically identifying and spreading evidence, but also improving its quality and quantity production per clinical needs. Methods. Cochrane Rehabilitation is a network of individuals, coming from all continents. Therefore, a clear and well-structured organisation is required to make Cochrane Rehabilitation functioning effectively. Results. Up to now 272 people from 52 countries expressed their willingness to collaborate. The Field Director will be directly responsible for the Knowledge Translation strategy and will be assisted by the Executive Committee, including the Chairs of the Committees (Review Tagging, Methodology, Publication, Communication, Education). The Field Coordinator will ensure the implementation of a networking strategy and coordination of activities between the Committees, Units and individual members. The Advisory Board includes key persons from different international stakeholders, recognised as opinion leaders in rehabilitation. Conclusions. Cochrane Rehabilitation is working to drive, on one side, evidence and methods developed by Cochrane to the world of Rehabilitation and, on the other, to convey priorities, needs and specificities of Rehabilitation to Cochrane.
