Tenth EDCTP Forum: Equity in Research for Health

The European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) warmly welcome you to this Tenth EDCTP Forum to be held virtually and via a link to Maputo in our host country Mozambique from 17-21 October 2021. Registration for the virtual Forum is open and free.

This Tenth Forum, our first virtual Forum, is an opportunity for participants working in global health research around the world, to join with us in diverse Forum activities anchored in a compelling scientific programme. Although the online format precludes face-to-face in-person contact for most participants, it offers opportunities for active participation by everyone who is unable to travel to Maputo during the pandemic.

The Forum theme - Equity in research for health – is at the core of the EDCTP mission. The second EDCTP programme, EDCTP2, has seen increasing participation from across Africa and Europe in our projects. Nevertheless, gender and geographical disparities remain. We welcome your engagement and your input in discussions at the Forum about successes and challenges in achieving equity in research, and how best to ensure that research processes and outputs address health inequities.

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. 

Important dates:

  1. Abstract deadline - June 10, 2021
  2. Registration open
