International Register for Health Research

“Register to Promote Transparency and Prevent Duplication

A major global initiative to establish an international register that will improve the transparency of health research was launched today by Health Minister Lord Howe.

The register is called PROSPERO, the first online facility to register systematic reviews for research about health and social care from all around the world. The register is completely free and open to the public. It was started by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Centre for Reviews and Dissemination (CRD) which is funded by the Department of Health.

The register is designed to avoid the duplication of health research and will act as a guard against selective reporting of research.”
