Governing Agencies and Ethics Review Structure
Points to Consider
- A clinical research proposal will be submitted to the Research Coordinating Unit (RCU) at the Ministry of Health. The RCU will then coordinate protocol review session for Central Institutional Review Board (IRB). The Central IRB will make ethics clearance for studies that meet the required standard and pass the application to Research Ethics Committee (REC) for review. Final study approval will be issued by the IRB and REC.
