EDCTP has activated its emergency funding mechanism to support 22 international partnerships helping countries in sub-Saharan Africa prepare for and manage the COVID-19 pandemic.
The research community globally has rapidly mobilised to gather information on SARS-CoV-2. Much of this information will be relevant to sub-Saharan Africa, but there are several reasons why specific data from the region are required: biological response, demographics, testing and control measures.
This publication is one of four publications presenting the 2020 EDCTP portfolio. See also publications on international collaborative clinical research projects, fellowships and clinical research capacity development.
