The European Union supports the international efforts for more and better research to combat health-related poverty and communicable diseases, in particular malaria, HIV/AIDS and tuberculosis, but also funding research targeting increasingly drug-resistant viruses, such as hepatitis B and C. The EU helped set up the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Platform (EDCTP). Funded by the Commission and comprising 14 EU Member States plus Norway, the platform supports “development of new clinical interventions to fight HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in developing countries, particularly sub-Saharan Africa, and to improve generally the quality of research in relation to these diseases”.
