EDCTP
EUROPEAN & DEVELOPING COUNTRIES CLINICAL TRIALS PARTNERSHIP
About EDCTP

 
The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) was created in 2003 as an European response to the global health crisis caused by the three main poverty-related diseases of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. These diseases account for over 6 million deaths each year, and the numbers are growing. Sub-Saharan Africa is the world´s worst-affected region where besides ravaging lives, they impede development and cause poverty.

About Mission

The mission of the EDCTP is to accelerate the development of new clinical interventions to fight HIV/AIDS, Malaria and Tuberculosis in developing countries (DCs), particularly sub-Saharan Africa, and to improve generally the quality of research in relation to these diseases.
The activities of the EDCTP include:
  • stepping up cooperation and networking of European National Programmes accelerating clinical trials of new and improved existing products, in particular drugs and vaccines in DCs;
  • ensuring that research effectively addresses the needs and priorities of DCs;
  • helping to develop and strengthen capacities in the DCs, including the promotion of technology transfer;
  • encouraging the participation o the private sector;
  • mobilising additional funds to fight these diseases.
