With comments as “the project is likely to have a significant impact”, and “this project will make a substantial contribution to the expected impact”, the reviewers of the European Union agency EDCTP approved for funding another new project: “LiberHetica: increasing the ethics capacity of oversight for clinical trials in Liberia by establishing European-African collaborations that facilitates implementation of efficient processes …”. A great team lead by Liberian institutional rapresentatives made this come true, therefore I would like to thank Dr. Bolay Fotorma, Jemee Tegli, Dr. Stephen B. Kennedy, Gloria Mason, and Cecilia Morris.

The way to build bridges instead of walls is still long.

The way to build bridges instead of walls is still long, but I am happy to have got European Union funding for this project. Africlinique project aims to increase the capacity to oversight clinical trials addressing deadly diseases in Central African countries (specifically Republic of the Congo, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Cameroon and Gabon). This achievement was made possible thanks to the exciting proactiveness and invaluable collaboration of a Central African team lead by Prof. Francine Ntoumi, already coordinator of Central Africa Network on Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and Malaria (CANTAM).
