There is increasing attention and space given to the role and value of social sciences within clinical trials. Qualitative research, using innovative and novel methods and approaches, has much to offer when embedded within a randomised clinical trial. Drawing on the experience of an ongoing programme of qualitative studies within large international clinical trials in Sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia, I reflect on these opportunities and explore the core challenges within such interdisciplinary working. Navigating the contours and parameters of what constitutes relevant and accessible data within such studies can be fraught and reflects the tensions in generating evidence which will effectively support the design and delivery of behavioural interventions outside of trial settings.
