Innovative approaches to enhance poverty-related diseases research

Basic Information

Despite large-scale investments in product development for poverty-related diseases (PRDs), progress in achieving public health gain is slow. Alongside sustained, long-term funding for product development, there is a need to encourage the use of new, innovative approaches and emerging technologies in sub-Saharan Africa, to achieve rapid progress and impact.

Network EDCTP2
Aim of the joint call The purpose of this call for proposals is to fund a number of small- to medium-scale clinical trials and/or clinical research studies that can deliver proof-of-concept or validation of smart, highly innovative technologies or concepts to prevent, treat or diagnose PRDs in sub-Saharan Africa. The call is strictly aimed at supporting novel innovations, and therefore excludes concepts and technologies that have previously been commercialised, rolled out, tested in large trials, or are already in routine use in healthcare settings.
