NHG Human Research Protection Programme Successfully Attains Full Accreditation by AAHRPP for the 3rd time in March 2015


NHG was successfully awarded Full Accreditation by the Council on Accreditation of the Association for the Accreditation of Human Research Protection Programs, Inc (AAHRPP) in March 2015. This is NHG’s third successful accreditation of its Human Research Protection Programme (HRPP). The first two accreditations were awarded in 2007 and 2010 respectively.


This prestigious award is an assurance of NHG’s international standing in delivering a quality HRPP, and validates NHG’s commitment to the protection of human subjects.

This significant achievement was the result of enthusiastic participation and contributions from the NHG senior management, research leaders and staff from NHG and affiliated institutions, members of the Domain Specific Review Board (DSRB), as well as the dedicated coordinating team from the Office of Human Research Protection Programme (OHRPP). Notably, the Council on Accreditation commended NHG on its robust HRPP operations across the complex organisational structure and complimented the DSRB on their depth of knowledge.
