Health Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in clinical research

You need a CRO who ensures diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is at the forefront of study delivery and outcomes. At Worldwide Clinical Trials, we offer comprehensive solutions across clinical program development, regulatory strategy, diversity action planning, and operational solutions in trial delivery.

The Health Equity Task Force is comprised of experts at all functional levels who develop the framework of our Diversity Action Plans, ensuring operational implementation across all the study’s teams.

Accessible Health Equity Knowledge

The Food and Drug Omnibus Reform Act (FDORA) was signed into law December 2022, taking effect January 1, 2023. This recent legislation mandates that all drug developers create and submit a formal Diversity Action Plan no later than the end of Phase 2. An operational Diversity Action Plan brings numerous benefits to your drug development program, including:

  • Mitigating long-term costs to drug development associated with post-market surveillance requirements
  • Priming new drugs for commercial success by ensuring comprehensive efficacy data
  • Informing protocol design and trial delivery

Global & Regional Regulatory Expertise

Worldwide offers practical knowledge in the North American and International regulatory arenas through all phases of the drug development process. Additionally, we provide extensive industry experience shaping project plans to meet Diversity Action Plan requirements.
