Editorial

ENGLISH SUMMARY : Project SAGE (South African Guidelines Excellence) is a 3-year research project, funded by the South African Medical Research Council, through the South African University Flagship Project scheme (http://www.mrc.ac.za/cochrane/sage.htm). Using stakeholder-driven processes, SAGE will provide tools to assist effective South African (SA) clinical practice guideline (CPG) activities in developing, adapting, adopting, contextualising and implementing primary care CPGs. In a resource-limited setting such as SA, where access to resources for health is limited, ensuring best use of effective and cost-effective primary care diagnostics and treatments is key to reducing waste, improving access and hence improving quality of care.
