This public consultation is an essential part of the first interim evaluation of the EDCTP2 programme carried out by the Commission assisted by independent experts. Your opinion and the views of other stakeholders will contribute to this evaluation and to the implementation of the EDCTP2 programme, that aims to support clinical development of effective, safe, accessible, suitable and affordable medical interventions in order to reduce the social and economic burden of poverty-related diseases in sub-Saharan Africa.
