GLOBALSURG BENIN is the NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery Hub in Bénin Republic.
Our aim is to improve healthcare practice in our hospitals by involving health workers in collaborative research. This will make surgery safer for our patients.
Clinical trials help to improve daily practice across our network. Our Hub has trained more than 200 local clinicians in clinical trial good practice, helping to build national research capacity. Over 150 clinicians have obtained Good Clinical Practice certification and been involved in clinical trials.
The hub is seeking to involve more rural hospitals in our clinical trials for the benefit of patients with limited access to healthcare.
The NIHR GSU Hub in Bénin is based at Cotonou city, in the School of health sciences, under the University of Abomey Calavi.
