This is the working space for the African coaLition for Epidemic Research, Response and Training (ALERRT), a clinical research and response network for epidemic infections in sub-Saharan Africa.
This area aims to bring all the partners in ALERRT together so that knowledge can be shared and a plan for capacity development and training delivered through efforts within and between the sites, and online through this platform.
The training and capacity development activities will involve:
- Bespoke resources and training to develop research knowledge, methods, skills and capabilities of researchers and frontline healthcare workers
- Unique networking and collaborative opportunities including finding experts, collaborators or research organisations
- Effective online knowledge sharing and dissemination system to maximise the impact of ALERRT
- A career development scheme to support staff and track our achievements
This Network is supported by the European & Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) 2 Programme under the European Union - grant agreement number RIA2016E-1612. Its initial focus is on advancing rapid and coherent research response in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).
