EU funded projects on poverty-related diseases HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria
The global emergency caused by HIV / AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis requires new approaches to confront these three major poverty-related diseases. ln response to this emergency, the European Commission provides a broad comprehensive approach in a wide range of policy areas, including trade, development and research. For research, the overall strategy is to develop new drugs, vaccines and other effective interventions through two mechanisms: support of research projects of promising new candidates through pre-clinical and early human testing and establishment of a programme to support phases... Il and III clinical trials in Africa through the EDCTP (European & Developing Clinical Trials Partnership). The sixth Framework Programme - FP6 (2002-2006) allocates a total of € 400 million to HIV / AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis with around 200 million for each of the interlinked components.
