Tenth EDCTP Forum:Equity in research for health
The Tenth EDCTP Forum to be held virtually at Maputo in the host country Mozambique. This Forum is an opportunity for participants working in global health research around the world, to join in diverse Forum activities anchored in a compelling scientific programme.
The Forum theme – Equity in research for health – is at the core of the EDCTP mission. The successes and challenges in achieving equity in research, and how best to ensure that research processes and outputs address health inequities will be discussed in the forum.
The Forum objectives reflect the need for global research partner cooperation in preparedness and response to disease outbreaks, in public health emergencies, and in strengthening health systems. Awareness of this need has never been greater than it is now.
The online Forum, linking to the hosts in Mozambique, presents a platform to take stock of the impact and achievements of currently operational Europe-Africa research and capacity building partnerships. How their work is contributing to stronger clinical research environments in African countries on the road to meeting the sustainable development goals will be examined.
