On February 20th 2018, it was held in the conference Hall of the Olympic Hotel Palace a seminar on the theme, “Fighting Malaria with CRISPR/Cas9 : Ethical Implications” with the aim of expressing an African voice in the context of the development of genome editing technologies with the main focus and theme of eliminating malaria.

The University Cheikh Anta Diop (UCAD) had the pleasure to organize the 7th Pan African Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) in April 2018. Twenty years after the MIM Meeting, Dakar had the honour to host this prestigious malaria conference where they adopted the theme “Dakar II: two decades of progress, challenges and perspectives in ending Malaria”.



The 7th MIM conference served as an opportunity to review MIM’s 20 years of contribution to the global goal of ending malaria in Africa, to better address current malaria research and control priorities.


Leading and emerging malaria researchers were provided with a platform to show case their research findings, share experiences and novel ideas as well as establish new research collaborations. Young scientists were exposed to ask questions and interact with malaria experts.


CANATAM was in the same booth with the EDCTP where excited and curious researchers wanted to know exactly what CANTAM is doing and how they could be part. Léonard NUMFOR(Project Manager) Leonard provided some explanations, coupled with the flyers provided and shared which they could visit the sites.

CANTAM/EDCTP World TB Day was held in all TB sites (In Cameroon, at the University of Yaoundé I on the 22nd March 2018; The 24th March 2018 at Centre de Recherches sur les Maladies Infectieuses, Brazzaville RoC and the 14th April 2018 at Centre de Recherches Medicales de Lambarene, Gabon) on the theme “Wanted: Leaders for a TB free World”. This day was an opportunity for the European and Developing Countries Clinical Trials Partnership (EDCTP) through the Central Africa Network for Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and Malaria (CANTAM) Network to shed light on the obscure daily lives of the victims of this burden and the actions of ordinary heroes in the fight against this infection, mobilizing political and social commitment to further progress towards its control and elimination.


The organization of this event first of all aimed at increasing the visibility of the EDCTP initiative through the CANTAM network program activities and also presenting to the scientific community and stakeholders the main achievements of CANTAM TB project.


The TB event has the purpose to bring together CANTAM TB members, representatives of Ministries of Health, Hospitals and TB treatment Centers, Dean of Faculties, scientists, researchers, national Tuberculosis Control Program, Doctorate Degree students and Master Degree students.



This celebration provided a scientific platform for presentations, exchanges and discussions that was an opportunity to establish more collaboration and synergy among the different scientists, researchers, stakeholders and others participants.


Those seminars clearly indicated that EDCTP and CANTAM programs clearly contribute in enhancing collaborative efforts of partners and countries, and thus in maximizing efficacy to knowledge development. CANTAM2 believes that capacity development gives central African researchers the opportunity to learn by doing, to utilize the developed capacity to ensure a successful outcome and capacity retention. This partnership ensures synergy and optimal use of resources and creates a win-win situation for all parties involved.



EDCTP and CANTAM are addressing a great thanks to all the attendees for their very active and intense participation


CANTAM is therefore an instrument for promotion of scientific cooperation between Central African and others northern and southern partners.

Training on genotypic assay for HIV-1 Drug Resistance

The purpose of this training was, to identify ways to measure HIV drug resistance, to use HIV DR Assays effectively and efficiently, to promote “best practices” in national laboratories.

The purpose was to transfer the expertise developed by CERMEL for the assessment of immunity specific to plasmodium falciparum.

Workshop on 3D Printing Training

The work plan for the second phase of CANTAM on clinical research capacity building and development has also as deliverable, the implementation of new technologies that could boost development of activities within the network and spread to others in a sustainable way. The 3D printing is one of the new technology selected for this package in view of its creativity, gain in time and production cost.

CANTAM, a network of five established and two developing institutions in Central Africa in sub-Saharan Africa.
