The James Lind Library collects historic cases related to clinical trials and has developed fantastic resources to explain the importance and elements of well conducted research. They have compiled a multitude of essays demonstrating the importance of the fair test of treatments in health care and shows how these ideas have evolved over time.

Through PAHO's partnership with the James Lind Library, there has been the successful translation of key essays into the languages of the region; Spanish, French, and Portuguese.  These documents are readily available to PAHO's expansive network of researchers to guide different research initiatives and promote best practices.
