New Database Provides Access To Countries’ Clinical Regulatory Requirements

The new Global Health Regulatory Requirements Database “provides consolidated access to country-level regulatory requirements, thereby aiding product developers, multilateral organizations, and advocates with getting products through clinical trial approval and designing programs to strengthen regulatory capacity,” Global Health Technologies Coalition (GHTC) Regulatory Associate Tricia Aung writes in the organization’s “Breakthroughs” blog. The tool, developed by GHTC, also can help “identify opportunities to provide technical assistance at the country level to strengthen the capacity of regulatory authorities, and encourage harmonization and policy reform,” Aung adds (10/7).
