Vision and Mission


Better health through best evidence


ACTA was established to advance health by:

  • promoting the role of investigator‐initiated clinical trials and clinical quality registries to inform decisions made by health practitioners, policymakers and consumers to ensure effective and cost‐effective healthcare in Australia;
  • increasing Australia’s capacity to generate and implement high‐quality clinical trial evidence through the development and support of sustainable clinical trial networks, coordinating centres and clinical quality registries, and the provision of mentoring and education opportunities for Members;
  • supporting communities of practice and providing a forum for the exploration and dissemination of effective and efficient clinical trial practice and policy, to ensure better health outcomes.

ACTA is a not-for-profit entity and does not conduct clinical trials itself.
