Diversity and inclusivity are essential components of clinical research, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is taking steps to ensure that underrepresented racial and ethnic groups are adequately represented in clinical trials for drugs and medical devices. The FDA Initiative to Assure Racial and Ethnic Diversity in Clinical Trials is a new guideline that aims to address the historical lack of diversity in clinical research and promote greater inclusion of diverse populations.

By recognizing the limitations of clinical trials conducted with predominantly white participants, the FDA is advocating for more diversity in clinical trials. This is crucial in creating treatments and medical devices that are effective for all patients, regardless of their race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. The FDA initiative includes various measures to promote greater diversity in clinical trials, including encouraging the inclusion of diverse populations, requiring greater reporting of clinical trial data by demographic subgroups, and enhancing the diversity of FDA staff.

Latin America’s diverse population offers a competitive advantage in clinical research by providing a range of genetic and environmental factors that can impact the efficacy of medical treatments. Furthermore, the FDA issued new draft guidance in April 2022 to enroll more participants from underrepresented racial and ethnic populations in clinical trials, emphasizing the importance of promoting diversity in clinical research.
