The European Commission directorate for Research policy has launched a ne public consultation to invite the views and opinions of European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) stakeholders, experts active in the fields and the wider public on the need for and nature of a new EDCTP initiative.

The EDCTP was established in September 2003 by 15 European countries with the aim to develop capacity building for clinical trials and new clinical interventions to address the needs of sub-Saharan Africa in the fields of HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.

The initial funding phase of the 2003-2009 EDCTP programme will expire in 2010. The input from this consultation will be used as input for a possible new EDCTP initiative by the European Commission. The statements and questions proposed are informed by the outcome and recommendations of previous evaluations of EDCTP.
