CALL

Today the EDCTP published its seven 2020 Calls for proposals to support clinical research on poverty-related diseases, including neglected infectious diseases, and research capacity development in sub-Saharan Africa. The calls represent an investment of more than €80 million.

The first call to open is the Mobilisation of funding for COVID-19 research in sub-Saharan Africa. The emergency funding initiative which is open to applications from 03 April and closes on 17 April 2020, is part of the European response to the COVID-19 emergency.

Dr Michael Makanga, EDCTP’s Executive Director:

“At this critical time, EDCTP has activated its emergency funding mechanism in view of the rapidly rising numbers of COVID-19 cases being reported from affected countries, including more and more sub-Saharan African countries. We call upon all our member states and global partners to join hands with us and co-finance the desperately needed collaborative clinical research involving COVID-19 to be conducted in sub-Saharan Africa.”
