A Pan African Clinical Trials Registry for the specific needs of triallists on the continent
Clinical trials provide the best evidence for which health care interventions work, which do not, and which may be harmful. Ideally we aim to base our clinical practice on the results from well-conducted trials. For us to be able to do so, all trial reports must be available in the public domain and accurately reflect the methods and the results of clinical trials.
