The World Health Organisation has launched an open consultation on the global clinical trials resolution adopted in May 2022.
Delegates at the World Health Assembly earlier this year had approved a resolution that aims to improve the coordination, design, and conduct of clinical trials worldwide, and calls on countries to ensure that publicly funded trials make their results public on a trial registry within 12 months.
According to an email circulated to stakeholders:
"You are invited to a virtual consultation on Friday, 7 October 2022 from 14:00 – 15:30 (CEST)."
"The primary objective of the 7 October session is to call for inputs through an online tool that will be available on WHO’s website during October and early November 2022... From the inputs received a report will be collated and submitted to the Seventy-sixth World Health Assembly for consideration by Member States."
"Please register for the meeting in advance using this link, and forward to any colleagues who may be interested."
"You can register for the consultation here:
TranspariMED looks forward to engaging with this process, while noting that it took the WHO nearly half a year to set up the initial consultation call for a process that has to conclude within a year of the adoption of the resolution.
