On 25 July 2019, the Lebanese Clinical Trials Registry (LBCTR) became a member of the Primary Registry Network of ICTRP. LBCTR is also becoming a data provider and trials registered with LBCTR will be added to the ICTRP database. LBCTR was established by the Lebanese Ministry of Public Health with the support of the WHO Lebanon office and the WHO EMRO IT team. This new registry will contribute to research transparency in the EMRO region and will ensure the registration of all clinical trials conducted in Lebanon.
With the addition of LBCTR, the ICTRP Network has now 17 primary registries and 1 data provider.
