West Africa remains challenged by the heavy death toll related to poverty-related diseases such as HIV, Tuberculosis, Malaria and other Neglected Tropical Diseases. Recognising these challenges and the need to proffer sustainable solutions for the sub-region, the West African Network for Tuberculosis, AIDS and Malaria (WANETAM) was established in 2009.

As one of the Networks of Excellence supported by the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) WANETAM seeks to combat poverty-related diseases in line with the International Conference on Harmonisation Guidelines for Good Clinical Practice (ICH-GCP). As a consortium, the network currently has a membership of 25 institutions from 12 West African countries and 5 institutions from 4 European countries.

Our Mission

Building regional, national, institutional and individual capacities to conduct clinical trials in West Africa.

Our Vision

To attain expertise in our network of West African institutions to conduct clinical trials, research and control of poverty-related diseases such as Malaria, Tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS.
