Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership or EDCTP is a partnership between the European Union, Norway, Switzerland and developing countries and other donors, as well as the pharmaceutical industry, to enable clinical trials and the development of new medicines and vaccines against HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. The need for global action against these diseases in order to promote poverty reduction has been recognised by the United Nations, the G8, and the African Union, and the program envisioned the provision of 600 million for the period 2003-2007 in order to translate medical research results into clinical applications relevant to the needs of developing countries. The European Council adopted the Programme for Action: Accelerated action on HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in the context of poverty reduction on 15 May 2001, following its launch by the European Commission. The Commission proposal was adopted on 16 June 2003 by the Council and the European Parliament.show more
