A new call for proposals to increase research capacity is now available from the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), TDR and the UK Medical Research Council (MRC-UK).
The call is intended to support projects that will develop and strengthen research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa to conduct high quality health research during infectious disease emergencies such as the Ebola virus disease (EVD) outbreak in West Africa.
Funding covers capacity development at the regional, national, institutional or staff level, and supports activities such as training for clinical trials and operational or implementation research, generating evidence on how to introduce and test new tools or treatments during outbreaks of EVD or other emerging infectious diseases, as well as identifying and implementing best practices to build community and national health authority support and engagement.
