Tenth EDCTP Forum: Equity in Research for Health
The Tenth biennal EDCTP Forum took place virtually, because of COVID-19 pandemic, from 17th to 21st October 2021, hosted by the National Institute of Health (INS), Mozambique and the Health Research Centre of Manhiça (CISM). The Opening and Closing sessions were held in person at the Joaquim Chissano International Conference Centre (JICC) in Maputo (Mozambique).
The topic of Forum “Equity in Research for Health” gave the excellent opportunity of networking between over six hundred most exponent from different regions and research fields.
In this occasion we had the opportunity to participate to the Tenth EDCTP Forum presenting, during the Poster Session, our INTEGRATION Project. We presented the first results of the beginning of the project, started a few months ago (may 2021), in which the main goals of the adopted clinical studies strategies were to improve IPTp coverage for malaria prevention in pregnant women, and simultaneously to boost antenatal care (ANC) attendance and uptake of the latest WHO ANC recommendations of eight ANC contacts.
