New audit of non-commercial funders’ policies

A new audit of non-commercial funders’ policies has been published in JAMA by Ben Goldacre’s team at the EBMDataLab at the University of Oxford. Out of 18 charities and federal bodies, which between them spend around $40 billion on health research every year, the researchers found that only two (the UK’s Medical Research Council and Germany’s DFG) had a strong policy requiring trials they fund to be registered, results reported and data shared.

  1. Note that this Friday (18 May) marks the one-year anniversary of the WHO Joint Statement:

    It would be great if REWARD could write a blog on steps taken and progress achieved by DFID, MRC and NIHR since they signed this important document.
    Thank you!
