Ibero-LatinAmerican Satellite Cochrane Skin Group


The Cochrane Skin Group is one of  the 53 collaborating groups of the Global Network of the Cochrane Collaboration. The CSG central objective is the collection of the best evidence regarding the safety and effectiveness of interventions used in the treatment of dermatological patients.

The first CSG Satellite Group was formally registered in France in March 2012, and since that time it has been based at the Henri Mondor University Hospital.

Despite the relevance of the work carried out  by the French Satellite Group, another Satellite Group that could integrate the Spanish speaking scientific dermatological community, was needed. Therefore, and in response to this need, the Ibero-LatinAmerican Satellite CSG was  formally created in July 2018. The IberoLatinAmerican Satellite CSG was formally created in Medellin, Colombia in July 2018, and is also one of the collaboration networks of the Group of Investigative Dermatology (GRID) of the Universidad de Antioquia.

What we do

In the near future we plan to produce skin-related systematic reviews of evidence  focused on:

  • Bacterial, fungal and viral skin infections
  • Leishmaniasis
  • Leprosy and other mycobacterial skin diseases
  • Diagnostic tests methodology and Systematic Reviews (SR)/Metanalysis 
  • Economic analysis Systematic Reviews/Metanalysis. (High cost treatments for Latin-American patients with skin cancer, psoriasis, atopic dermatitis and hidradenitis suppurativa)
  • Network Metanalysis (In collaboration with the French Satellite CSG)

We are collaborating in the production and updating of priority CSG titles such as:

  • Interventions for pruritus of unknown cause (In collaboration with Cochrane Argentina - Instituto Universitario Hospital Italiano. (Protocol published last Sept 2018)

We have supported the methods of Cochrane Skin reviews throughout the Spanish speaking countries as follows:

  • Participation in Protocol´s design and development courses at meetings of the Ibero-LatinAmerican Cochrane Network (2017)
  • Spanish-language trials searches and publication´s retrieval.

We will also help to prioritise reviews which are relevant to Spanish speaking countries in the next round of the Cochrane´s prioritization project in 2020.

We promote Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) in the Spanish-speaking dermatological community  through courses/projects such as:

  • Through a Diplomat course in Evidence-Based Dermatology  (Year 2017)
  • The design and execution of the project entitled “Economic and  sociodemographic characterization of patients with Psoriasis, Atopic Dermatitis, Melasma, Urticaria, Female Pattern Androgenetic alopecia, and Acne. (Colombia – CILAD)
  • The design and execution of the project entitled “Integration of health information and communication technologies in dermatology to promote patient-centered healthcare    (Colombia – CILAD


Satellite Group offices are provided by the Universidad de Antioquia at its School of Medicine.
