Strategic actions supporting large-scale clinical trials 2019

The purpose of this call for proposals is to support clinical research activities that are part of a large-scale clinical trial with the potential to achieve rapid advances in the clinical development of new or improved medical interventions (drugs, vaccines, microbicides) or diagnostics, including multiplex diagnostic platforms, for poverty-related infectious diseases. These projects focus on phase III/IV study(ies) or advanced field testing (in the case of diagnostics). The proposed EDCTP2-funded study(ies) are conducted in sub-Saharan Africa but may form part of a larger trial that is conducted globally.
