Youth of KIDS Albania are grateful and very interested to this initiative. They are learning more about biomedicine, research, clinical trials and innovation thanks to a professional team that develops training course for them.
The focus of KIDS Albania is to improve paediatric medicine, working together and closely with researchers to advocate children in healthcare, to raise the awareness about the importance of children’s involvement in the clinical trials and to define priorities for future research and help and inform children and young patients about the clinical trials that they will be involved.
