EDCTP: Optimizing the Use of Products for Poverty-Related Diseases among People

Deadline: 29 September 2016

The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) is currently inviting applications for its Clinical Trials and Operational Research Studies to Optimize the Use of Products for Poverty-Related Diseases in Mothers, Newborns, Children and/or Adolescents with an aim to support actions on preventive and therapeutic clinical interventions of post-registration products, as well as related behavioral studies, aimed at optimizing use of new or improved products or combination of products for mothers, newborns, children and/or adolescents.

The objective of this call is to optimize the use, delivery and access to PRD (1) medicinal products in sub-Saharan Africa for mothers, newborns, children and/or adolescents.
