The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is a public-public partnership between countries in Europe and sub-Saharan Africa, supported by the European Union. It aims to support collaborative research that accelerates the clinical development of new or improved interventions to prevent or treat HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other poverty-related infectious diseases, including neglected infectious diseases and emerging or re-emerging infectious diseases, prevalent in sub-Saharan Africa.
The ANRS | Emerging Infectious Diseases contributes actively to the EDCTP2 programme through:
- The funding of clinical trials and multidisciplinary research projects conducted in sub-Saharan Africa in the framework of its two generic calls for proposals
- The support and funding to the 4 partner research sites in West Africa (Cameroon, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso)
- The funding of doctoral and postdoctoral scholarships for non-clinical and clinical young researchers conducting research in the partners’ country
