Pregnant women have frequently been excluded from or de-prioritized in clinical research, leaving them and their providers to make decisions without adequate information or guidance regarding the safety and efficacy of necessary treatments.
Treatment Action Group (TAG), the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF), Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) and HIV/AIDS Network Coordination Women’s HIV Research Collaborative (WHRC) invite you to join us for the first of a two-part webinar series on the inclusion of pregnant and lactating women in research.
We hope you can join us to:
- Review the history of the inclusion of pregnant and lactating women as clinical research participants;
- Explore the issues pregnant and lactating women and their providers face in diagnosing, treating, and administering safe and effective medications and interventions;
- Discuss current restrictions and barriers to including pregnant and lactating women in research; and
- Plan around ongoing and future opportunities for advocacy to affect change to research policy and practice.
