Examining Race, Ethnicity in OB/GYN Trials, Publications

JAMA Network

In this study of U.S.-based obstetrics and gynecology (OB-GYN) clinical trials and publications between 2007 and 2020, American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Black, and Latinx groups were underrepresented, but underrepresentation varied by race and ethnicity, subspecialty, and funder. Obstetric and family planning trials had the most diversity of the subspecialties. All subspecialties should strive for more equitably representative research.
