Promoting good health research practice in low- and middle-income countries
The need for high-quality health research
Global Health Action "Good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines have been the source of improvement in the quality of clinical trials; however, there are limitations to the application of GCP in the conduct of health research beyond industry-sponsored clinical trials. The UNICEF/UNDP/World Bank/WHO Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Disease is promoting good practice in all health research involving human through the Good Health Research Practice (GHRP) training program initiative.
(...) TDR brought together scientists with extensive experience in LMICs representing diverse areas of expertise in public health research, quantitative and qualitative research, ethics, quality management, and education to develop a short training course curriculum."
