The Springfield Research (KDH) Site Team and Quality Assurance (QA) Team were recently awarded a Certificate of Recognition for their contribution to the successful results of a South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) Good Clinical Practice (GCP) compliance inspection.

The achievement was due to their hard work, dedication, and commitment to ensuring that the INSIGHT clinical trial was conducted in accordance with the highest standards of GCP. The SAHPRA GCP compliance inspection is a rigorous process that ensures that clinical trials are conducted in compliance with ethical and regulatory requirements, and that the safety and well-being of study participants are protected. The KDH Site Team and QA Team's contributions have not only led to the successful completion of the INSIGHT clinical trial audit but also to the advancement of research in TB and HIV and best practices for patient care. Their achievement is a remarkable accomplishment and sets an example for other clinical trial teams to follow.
