Since 2008, at the request of different stakeholders, UNICRI has developed initiatives to protect and promote human rights and the well-being of participants in biomedical research. Special attention has been paid to the ethical and legal aspects of drug trials, including fraud prevention, to the respect for international good clinical practice standards and to the establishment of effective legislative frameworks.
UNICRI believes that a proper legislative framework, its correct application and adequate training of professionals involved in research with human beings, are all key factors to ensure the protection and promotion of human rights, as well as support good governance and the creation of a climate of trust in biomedical research worldwide.
In this framework, UNICRI and the Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA), in partnership with the Food and Drugs Authority of Ghana, have delivered a training course on Good Clinical Practices (GCP) Inspectorates and GCP Inspections.
The training course took place in Accra across five days, from 7 to 11 July 2014. The initiative was addressed to clinical trials inspectors, working in the control and monitoring of drug trials. Participants from the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) Central Office and from the Regional Offices of Ghana attended the training.
