European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership

Basic Information


EDCTP2 is a continuation of the EDCTP1 programme. The goal of EDCTP2 remains to reduce the burden of poverty related diseases (PRDs) by accelerating the development of new or improved tools to address them. EDCTP2 retains much of the core mission of EDCTP1, but will build on an extended and more flexible mandate to valorize the clinical capacities established and reinforced by EDCTP1, to encompass a wider range of PRDs, to support the clinical testing of new products and the appropriate use and delivery in the health systems context. The EDCTP2 programme will run over a ten-year period from 2014 to 2024.

Main research priorities of the network

The programme supports clinical trials and related research activities on PRDs, as well as capacity development for clinical trials and related research in sub-Saharan Africa. EDCTP2 supports all phases of clinical trials (phases I to IV) for new or improved medical interventions, as well as advanced testing and field validation of new diagnostic tools.
