In November 2017, CIOMS launched a Working Group (WG) composed of key stakeholders including academia, regulators, public-private partnerships for product development and industry partners to address the present challenges and opportunities for clinical research in Resource Limited Settings (RLS). This WG aims to develop a consensus on relevant scientific issues and propose pragmatic recommendations for improvement of the environment and good practices for social acceptance, planning, assessing, performing and interpreting randomized controlled clinical trials in RLS. Furthermore, collaborative efforts aimed at capitalizing on existing initiatives/ documents will also be part of the WG in order to provide output that is as comprehensive as possible, does not duplicate other efforts and has added value. We are proud to be a part of this group as the only CRO member representing service providers’ field.
