Development cooperation


EDCTP (European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership) awarded a COVID-19 research grant to ITM’s Outbreak Research Team to study how the COVID-19 viral disease spreads in a low-income peri-urban community in Mozambique, and who is most affected by the disease in sub-Saharan Africa. The project, called AfriCoVER, is a collaboration with Instituto Nacional de Saúde in Mozambique, ITM’s partner supported by the Flemish Government to build research capacity, the Institut de Recherche pour le Développement (Research Institute for Development) in France and the University Medical Centre in the Netherlands.
