Ethics and regulatory capacities – 2020

The purpose of this call for proposals is to fund projects that are designed to support countries in sub-Saharan Africa to establish and/or develop robust national medicines regulatory systems and capacities for ethical review of clinical research and use of medicinal products and technologies in humans, as well as national and international collaboration in compliance with established internationally accepted good practices. This funding scheme targets projects with the active involvement of National Ethics Committees and/or National Regulatory Authorities from countries with both weak and strong ethics and regulatory capacities in sub-Saharan Africa.
