SATVI is committed to high ethical standards necessary for conducting research involving human participants. We ensure that the safety of study participants comes first, and make sure that all participants are well informed of their rights before, during and after trials. A dedicated Regulatory Specialist ensures we comply with local, national and international standards. In addition, all SATVI personnel receive rigorous training in Good Clinical Practice (GCP). Our activities are overseen by the University of Cape Town’s Faculty of Health Sciences Human Research Ethics Committee.
