The Global Health Trials Nigerian Regional Faculty held a workshop entitled Capacity building for clinical research in the face of disaster and conflict situation in middle and low income countries at the National Hospital, Abuja, on the 28th January 2017. The workshop was intended for clinical research staff of all roles, and aimed to provide an overview and food for thought about clinical research during disease outbreaks, or other types of disasters.

The presentations from the day can be found on the right hand side of this screen. During the workshop, Dr Ogunfowokun also launched the Nigerian Regional Faculty web pages, which can be found by clicking here. These web pages will provide useful locally relevant information for Nigerian researchers. 

Dr Ogunfowokun also drew attention to the TDR Clinical Research Competency Framework, which provides a useful way of measuring competency and trial capacity at an individual and site level, for the whole research team for any disease area or research type.
