EDCTP-GSK Senior Fellowships for co-morbidities between poverty-related diseases and non-communicable diseases – 2018

As healthcare in Africa is facing a significant challenge from the double burden of non-communicable diseases (NCD)on top of high rates of poverty-related infectious diseases (PRD), the purpose of this call is to support capacity development of potential African research leaders using the train-the-trainer model and to mentor junior researchers with an emphasis on hands-on research training linked to clinical trials activities in sub-Saharan Africa in the area of prevention, therapeutic management and prognosis of PRD and NCD co-morbidities. The call is jointly supported by EDCTP and GSK
