The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is a public–public partnership between 14 European and 16 African countries, supported by the European Union.
EDCTP’s vision is to reduce the individual, social and economic burden of poverty-related infectious diseases by affecting sub-Saharan Africa.
EDCTP’s mission is to accelerate the development of new or improved medicinal products for the identification, treatment and prevention of infectious diseases, including emerging and re-emerging diseases, through pre- and postregistration clinical studies, with emphasis on phase II and III clinical trials. Our approach integrates conduct of research with development of African clinical research capacity and networking.
The second EDCTP programme is implemented by the EDCTP Association supported under Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

Support for the development of clinical research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa is a second core objective of the EDCTP programme. Since 2003, EDCTP has invested in support for individual African researchers at different stages of their careers. A set of graduate and post-doctoral fellowship opportunities was developed, from early career preparatory fellowships to senior fellowships which support research team building and mentorship.
Moreover, EDCTP supports four regional Networks of Excellence and activities that strengthen the necessary ethical, regulatory and legal frameworks for clinical research. Clinical research capacity building also involves improving systems and work processes, including upgrades of laboratory and clinical facilities.
