Ethics and regulatory capacities 2020

Basic Information

Many partners contribute towards the establishment and capacity strengthening of ethical review frameworks and medicines regulatory bodies, as well as mapping, coordination, and where appropriate, practical, harmonisation of their processes in sub-Saharan Africa. Ensuring sustainable development, country ownership and collaboration among external partners are some of the key elements required to support ethics and regulatory functions in SSA. The EDCTP Association has dedicated its efforts to ensure that all sub-Saharan African countries hosting clinical trials have functional and effective ethics and regulatory review structures at institutional, national and regional levels. The current strategy promotes strengthening and collaboration of national ethics committees (NECs) and National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) to allow for long-term development plans towards strong regional collaboration and harmonisation goals.

Aim of the joint call The purpose of this Call for Proposals is to fund projects that are designed to support SSA countries to establish and/or develop robust national medicines regulatory systems and capacities for ethical review of clinical research and use of medicinal products and technologies in humans, as well as national and international collaboration in compliance with established internationally accepted good practices. This scheme targets projects with active involvement of NECs and/or NRAs from countries with both weak and strong ethics and regulatory capacities in SSA.
