It unites 14 EU member states, plus Norway and Switzerland, with 47 sub-Saharan African countries in a partnership to fight poverty-related diseases. The partnership helps European member states integrate and coordinate their national research programs and form partnerships with their African counterparts.

The focus of EDCTP funded projects is on Phase II and III clinical trials in sub-Saharan Africa. EDCTP supports multi-centre projects which combine clinical trials, capacity building and networking. The aim of integrating these three components is to ensure that the developed capacity is utilized to successfully conduct the clinical trials using best practices.

EDCTP is currently part of the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Program (FP6) for research and technological development, the European Union’s main instrument for funding research in Europe. FP6 aims to transform the European Union into a dynamic and competitive knowledge-based economy.
