Hi there - I am a research midwife working in the UK. I might be able to help you, although I don't have an in-depth knowledge of the requirements for SOPS I can certainly give you some information on what information must be included particularly in the protocol. I suspect you are probably further on than that, but if you would like to contact me on here I am more than happy to try and help.
I am an Associate Professor in Medicine /Dermatology and Venereology at Chreso University and honorary lecturer at the University of Zambia. I also head the Dermatology and National STI reference laboratory and HIV research intervention department at University Teaching Hospital in Zambia.
I am currently the PI of a study that aims to validate the treatment algorithms of Sexually Transmitted Infections in three provinces of Zambia. I have written a proposal and a SOPs manual and would be very grateful if someone could advice me regarding what are the different parts/requirements this sort of documents should meet. I would also be grateful if someone among the members of the Network with experience in study protocols and SOPs could have a look at my documents and provide some input.

Thank you very much in advance for your help.
