EDCTP-Wellcome symposium at ASTMH 2018
This symposium focuses on the conduct of controlled human infection studies (CHIS) in low- and middle-income countries (LMIC).These studies involve the deliberate infection of healthy human volunteers with disease-causing agents. Therefore, these studies require strong scientific and ethical justification, and oversight.
