Abstract

StaR Child Health was founded in 2009 to address the paucity and shortcomings of pediatric clinical trials. This initiative involves international experts who are dedicated to developing practical, evidence-based standards to enhance the reliability and relevance of pediatric clinical research. Through a systematic “knowledge to action” plan, StaR Child Health will make efforts to improve and expand the evidence-base for child health across the world. This article introduces the StaR Child Health agenda, the 11 initial priority topics that have been identified, and methods used to address these issues.
