TIBA has been recognized in the WHO annual report to be presented at the 72nd session of the WHO Regional Committee for Africa. Member states, led by the Regional Director Dr Moeti, will meet to discuss the continent's health in Togo starting 22 August 2022.
"WHO, together with its collaborating centres and strategic partners including the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP), Tackling Infections to Benefit Africa (TIBA), the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and the Africa Centres for Disease Control, has supported countries to conduct clinical trials, sequencing, and development of COVID-19 countermeasures."
The report discusses the impact of research.
"Research provides a platform for exchange of evidence and best practices for driving programmes and interventions. The research programme is important in providing strategic guidance and support for research to inform WHO’s health agenda."
