Clinical Trials Community Platform of Africa - a LinkedIN for Research Professionals
B A C K G R O U N D
The Clinical Trials Community is a platform of the African Academy of Sciences. Our goal is to increase the level of Clinical Trial investments in Africa by increasing the visibility of African clinical trialists and research sites as well as making transparent and accessible individual country regulatory and ethics procedures to inform decision making by sponsors. The Clinical Trials Community provides a platform for constant engagement among key stakeholders to increase efficiency and promote steady collaborations.

3. Improving predictability by providing access to regulatory and ethics requirements across
countries and an online platform for sponsor engagement.
4. Reducing bias in funding across countries and disease areas by highlighting gaps and promoting
synergy across strategic funders.
The CTC online platform makes the process of identifying African clinical trials sites effortless by providing easy access to African clinical trialists, site feasibility data and regulatory and ethics information all on one platform.
