Ensuring Inclusion

Participants in any clinical trial should represent the patients who will use the drug or vaccine being tested. Removing barriers and including African American, Hispanic/Latino, and American Indian/Alaska Native people in COVID-19 trials is essential for the development of treatments and vaccines that are safe and effective for these communities, who have been hit the hardest by the pandemic.
