Our aim at the Global Health Clinical Trials Programme is to establish a body of research that successfully highlights the issues with conducting clinical trials in developing countries and provides an effective framework of resources, tools and advice to overcome these barriers. GlobalHealthTrials.org will be an integral part of this research and will act as a platform to share ideas, get a consensus on the current situations, collaborate with research sites, collect data and disseminate findings. One of our research goals is to identify the difficulties and solutions that you as researchers are experiencing when working on clinical trials. We then aim to highlight the most important issues and find ways to improve the current situation- for this to work we really need your help.
