EDCTP supports networks of research centres that are involved in clinical trials in sub-Saharan Africa. These Networks of Excellence (NoEs) facilitate research collaboration by uniting diverse institutions in the four regions of sub-Saharan Africa.

Each institution contributes its individual strengths in areas such as good clinical practice, good clinical laboratory practice, data management, laboratory techniques and epidemiology, to the network in the context of on going clinical research work. By collaborating they learn and develop, and thereby raise the quality of clinical research and practice in sub-Saharan Africa.

Each of the NoE's has a related memberhub within The Global Health Network:



Central Africa Clinical Research Network



Eastern Africa Consortium for Clinical Research



Trials of Excellence in Southern Africa



West African Network for TB, AIDS and Malaria
