World Malaria Day 2016: joining forces to end malaria
There has been remarkable progress made in malaria control based on current World health Organisation estimates. Nonetheless, there is still much to be done in the fight against malaria in malaria prevention, diagnostic testing and treatment. The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) supports malaria research in sub-Saharan African countries by funding clinical trials conducted by African-European research partnerships, as well as strengthening individual and institutional capacities to conduct trials. Since 2003, EDCTP has financed 42 malaria grants in malaria prevention, diagnostic testing and treatment. EDCTP, now in its second programme, is committed to continue working in partnership in a joint effort geared towards ending malaria.
