The overall objective of this project is to create sustainable research capacity and research networks in Africa (Mali, South Africa and Uganda). We will identify needs and develop and implement research training programmes. The research institutions from Africa will have implemented research methodologies so that they are able to improve traditional medicines, identify bio-active compounds, and clinically evaluate and register medicinal products that are used for treatment of illnesses that are frequent in African countries.
