Clinical Trials in Resource-Limited Settings

The goal of the Global Health Clinical Trials Programme is to promote and make easier the conduct of non-commercial clinical research across all diseases in resource-poor settings. We present a series of short lectures to provide an introduction to clinical trials and explore some of the challenges facing clinical trialists in resource-limited settings.
