About us

In 2008, the World Health Organization established the International Clinical Trials Registry Platform (ICTRP), to promote the registration of all the management trials as a scientific and ethical obligation. In 2011, PROSPERO, an international platform of prospective registrations of systematic reviews in health and social care was founded. PROSPERO aims to provide a comprehensive listing of systematic reviews registered at inception to help avoid unplanned duplication and enable comparison of reported review methods with what was planned in the protocol. Unfortunately, organizations and programs rarely pay attention to registering of practice guidelines. With the aim of providing a free and open international registration platform for all clinical practice guidelines under development, the International Practice Guideline Register Platform (IPGRP) program was initiated in January, 2014. This platform can improve the transparency in guideline development and prevent duplications, as well as promote the collaboration, dissemination and implementation of guidelines among various developers.
