The Google Ads policy on health care and medicines will change around early April. The policy change impacts advertisements for clinical trial recruitment. The change will affect all countries; however, ads can continue to serve in the UK, Ireland, Canada, the US, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Italy, Australia, and Germany, subject to certain criteria. We made this decision for business and legal reasons. We'll send notifications to affected advertisers. After the new policy goes into effect, the health care and medicines policy will be updated to reflect this change.
