Global Health EDCTP3 Training Networks – Clinical Research Fellowships
Project results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:
- Provide answers to research questions in the area of infectious disease clinical research of relevance for SSA and especially in the countries most severely affected by infectious diseases;
- Contribute to generate plausible solutions to improve uptake of innovations and new medical products;
- Increase the number of skilled infectious disease personnel working in SSA;
- Promote the career development and retention of skilled personnel in SSA;

Research to rapidly evaluate interventions on Ebola outbreaks in sub-Saharan Africa
This topic aims at supporting activities that are contributing to one or several of the expected impacts for this call. To that end, proposals submitted under this topic should aim at delivering results that are contributing to some of the following expected outcomes:
- An increased portfolio of therapeutics and diagnostic tools are available to researchers to move along the clinical development phases to combat Ebola disease;
- An improved surveillance system to rapidly detect novel Ebola virus outbreaks in Africa;
- A better understanding of the social dynamics within communities affected by Ebola virus outbreaks and a better awareness from these communities when it comes to the implementation of public health measures such as social restrictions and/or medical interventions;
Implementation research/real life assessment of existing interventions in women and children’s health
This topic aims at supporting activities that contribute to one or several of the expected impacts for this call. Proposals under this topic should aim for delivering results that are contributing to the following expected outcomes:
- Better understanding of the role of poverty-related diseases (PRDs), diarrhoeal diseases, bacterial infections (especially those where antimicrobial resistance is an issue), sepsis and lower respiratory tract infections in maternal, neonatal and child mortality and morbidity, as well as the barriers for the uptake of health interventions against these diseases in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
- Evaluation of the real-life impact of existing interventions in women and children’s health.
- Uptake of research findings on medical interventions (such as diagnostics, drugs, vaccines, and microbicides) of proven efficacy into clinical practice and routine care so that women and children in SSA can have access to safe health technologies for the management of PRDs.
- Widespread adoption of research findings into national, regional and/or international policy guidelines.
- Improved maternal, neonatal and child health in SSA.
- This call will be used to finance consultations, meetings, negotiations and other actions, as outlined in the European Commission’s Communication on The European social dialogue, a force for innovation and change (COM(2002)341), the Communication on Partnership for change in an enlarged Europe – Enhancing the contribution of European social dialogue (COM(2004)557) and the Commission Staff Working Document on the Functioning and potential of European sectoral social dialogue (SEC(2010)964).
- European social dialogue refers to discussions, consultations, negotiations and joint actions involving organisations representing either side of industry (employers or workers).
