West African Network for TB, AIDS and Malaria

West African Network of Excellence for tuberculosis (TB), AIDS, and Malaria (WANETAM), comprises 19 institutions in 10 countries.
WANETAM3 will build on the activities of disease-defined work packages (WPs)on TB, Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Neglected Tropical Diseases, Emerging Infections response and preparedness, and the inclusion of the Cross-Cutting Training that strengthens capacity of individuals in specialised skills needed in clinical research and the capacity of supporting infrastructure.
The WPs will consolidate the project’s mission to achieve sustainable capacity and multi-institutional collaboration in clinical research through activities that premise on:
1. Strategic Project-based training to build Research leadership
2. Hands-on operational and clinical studies that inform clinical trial plans and prevention
3. Resource & Platform Infrastructure development
4. Surveillance to build evidence-base for clinical trial
5. Diagnosis to support intervention, and
6. Building on quality assurance and expanding laboratory accreditation.
