The Pan African Clinical Trials Registry (PACTR) was born out of the need to ensure that all new trials in Africa are identified and that trial information is made widely available in an open-access repository. It is a prospective clinical trials registry, which aims to increase clinical trial registration in Africa by developing awareness of the need to register trials and supporting trialists during registration. PACTR is a valuable resource to understand the clinical trial landscape throughout Africa, and provides an opportunity to monitor the conduct of clinical trials. PACTR can be used to understand the changing trial landscape, and thereby research trends, while providing users with insight on regional capacity development. As an example, an analysis is done on the tuberculosis trials that are currently being conducted.
