There seem to be some good discussions going on study issues in Africa. Are there any researchers out there in Thailand & South East Asia with an interest in the issues surrounding field research (both clinical trials and epidemiological/observation studies)? One area we're working on here is trying to run and evaluate a community advisory board (CAB) up on the border with Burma, the idea being to improve community understanding and participation with the clinical trials conducted there. Does anyone have experience in this area that they can share?
