Short Call Abstract:

The aim of this call is to support activities that contribute to one or several expected outcomes:

  • Uptake of research results into clinical practice so that people in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly vulnerable populations, can have access to safe health technologies of proven efficacy for poverty-related diseases, including emerging and re-emerging infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistant infections;
  • Operational and evaluation tools for successfully translating research results into clinical practice are validated and health systems in sub-Saharan Africa are improved;
  • Widespread adoption of research results into national and international policy guidelines.

Proposals should address the following activities:

  • Carry out registration and/or post-registration studies of health technologies (such as pragmatic effectiveness studies) that address diseases within the score of GH EDCTP3 to demonstrate the clinical effectiveness in relevant patient populations;
  • Demonstrate the cost effectiveness of the health technologies being investigated in relevant communities;
  • Identify barriers to uptake of the health technologies being investigated and address them in the studies to be carried out;
  • Develop methods and evaluation tools that can ensure translating clinical research results into healthcare policy and practice. These methods should be broadly applicable to improve patients quality of life beyond the specific health technology being investigated;
  • Early involvement and regular interaction with policy and decision makers as well as end-users to have the health technology adopted by health systems.
