How to register a trial

This aspect of the Pan African Clinical Trials Registry is unique in recognising that African trialists face additional challenges in trial registration and seeks to provide feasible ways of overcoming these. Due to the limited and unreliable access to the internet experienced by individuals in a number of African countries, trials may be registered online, (via the internet if access is sufficiently reliable) or by email, postal mail or facsimile.

The following information is required to register a trial:
•    Title of trial
•    Trial acronym (if available)
•    Trial objective
•    Inclusion and exclusion criteria of participants
•    Target number of participants required (sample size)
•    Anticipated start date
•    Disease or condition
•    Information on interventions (name, dose, duration)
•    Primary outcome(s)
•    Secondary outcome(s)
•    Location of primary recruitment centre
•    Contact details of person(s) responsible for providing information about the trial to the public and the scientific community
•    Source of funding
•     Information on collaborators (name, address, country)
