Potential of Clinical Trials in Pakistan

White Paper

Introduction

Pakistan, with a population of 240.5 million, is the fifth most populous country in the world [1]. However, as a developing nation, it faces several health-related challenges, including high prevalence of communicable and non-communicable diseases, poor maternal and newborn health outcomes, as well as nutrition and life expectancy issues.
Recent developments and clinical research shifts in South Asia have allowed the country to realize its potential and claim its fair share in the market.
Due to a high disease burden, treatment-naive population, streamlined regulatory policies, and growing interest in clinical trial sites, Pakistan offers a promising landscape for clinical trial conduct.
