1 EDCTP: Past and present Consensus Meeting on EDCTP-II 27-28 September 2010 Brussels Charles S Mgone EDCTP Executive Director

2 The burden of poverty related disease caused by HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria HIV/AIDS 33.4 million are living with AIDS 2.7 million new cases per year 2 million deaths per year (280,000 are children) Tuberculosis > 2 billion are affected (10% will sick in their life time) 9.4 million new cases per year 1.8 million deaths per year (500,000 co-infected with HIV) Malaria Between 350 to 500 million cases per year > 1 million deaths per year (mostly children under 5 yrs)

3 EDCTP and the Millennium Development Goals MDG 1 – To eradicate extreme poverty and hunger MDG 2 – To archive universal primary education MDG 3 – To promote gender equality and empower women MDG 4 – To reduce child mortality MDG 5 – To improve maternal health MDG 6 – To combat HIV/AIDS, malariaand other diseases MDG 8 – To develop a global partnership for development

13 TB drugs, vaccines and diagnostics R&D Current tuberculosis treatment regimens are very old require long duration of many pills leading to poor adherence and default resulting in relapses and drug resistance (MDR, XDR, TDR) Immunisation with BCG is old, not fully effective and in presence of HIV causes significant adverse events Diagnosis of tuberculosis is difficult, complex and mostly unavailable at the point of care, especially in poor endemic countries

14 Cohort studies and capacity strengthening in preparation for TB vaccines clinical trials in Kenya Prospective epidemiological studies of TB in neonates and adolescents in Karemo Division, Siaya District, Western Kenya in preparation for future vaccine trials – KEMRI/CDC, Kisumu, Kenya KEMRI/CDC, University of Cape Town, SATVI, KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation, VSCR, Fondazione Centro San Raffaele del Monte Tabor (Italy), AREAS, EDCTP

15 Capacity Building Physical Infrastructure Clinical Research Centre Siaya Facility upgrades through study preparations Construction of a clinical research annex at the Siaya District Hospital (research site) including a TB procedure room for gastric lavage/sputum induction. Joint development of a clinical research building Opening and launch – August 2010
