Policy Issue Brief: A Call to Action for Diversity in Clinical Trials

FasterCures has initiated a body of work to advance system change within biomedical research to focus on and value diversity and representation within clinical trials. Following our report, 'Achieving Health Equity: A Multi-Stakeholder Action Plan to Address Diversity across the Clinical Trials Enterprise and the Biomedical Research Ecosystem', released in November 2021, this policy brief highlights current and proposed policies with recommendations to reform an unequal research ecosystem. Throughout 2021, FasterCures delivered formal comments and recommendations for several pieces of draft legislation included in this brief. Other policies on the horizon are included to complete the picture of current legislative policies proposed to address diversity in clinical trials.
