The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) aims to accelerate the development of new or improved drugs, vaccines, microbicides and diagnostics against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria as well as other poverty-related and neglected infectious diseases in sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on phase II and III clinical trials.
Calls for Proposals
EDCTP opened new calls for research proposals under its second programme: diagnostic tools for poverty-related diseases; maximising the impact of EDCTP research; strategic projects with major cofunding; improved treatment; and clinical management of poverty-related diseases.
EDCTP is a partnership between Europa and sub-Saharan Africa, a partnership between 13 African and 13 European countries that jointly contribute to the fight against HIV/Aids, tuberculosis, malaria and other neglected infectious diseases.
