MCT coverage: MCT is the only CRO that can cover French, English and Portuguese speaking parts. We have local staff in 13 countries (Senegal, Mali, Benin, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Malawi): this is a unique strategic advantage of MCT, allowing better efficiency in managing your clinical trials: less time spent in travels, better site management, better knowledge of the field (regulatory process, best sites, local vendors, local health care system organization), and so on.

In Sub-Saharan Africa, we continue implementing MCT cornerstone policy since its start: using local staff, to ensure local expertise in each country.
