AfriCoLeish receives funding boost from European Union
Date:4/22/2013

omized clinical trial in Eastern Africa, the project will, for the first time, provide conclusive evidence-based data on the WHO recommendation to treat kala-azar/HIV co-infected patients using Ambisome 40 mg/kg total dose, and on the locally used regimen of AmBisome 30mg/kg in combination with miltefosine that is used by MSF in Ethiopia. To do this, AfriCoLeish has the right partners all focused on a clear goal: neglected patients' needs', she added.

AfriCoLeish brings together six well-respected organizations from Europe and East Africa with vast experience in R&D and treatment of HIV and kala-azar, namely the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi); the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM) in Antwerp; the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine; Mdecins Sans Frontires (MSF, The Netherlands); the Institute of Endemic Diseases, University of Khartoum (IEND), Sudan; and the University of Gondar (UoG), Ethiopia.

'We are convinced that AfriCoLeish combines the experience and expertise required to deliver new treatment options that effectively address the dire needs of patients with kala-azar and those co-infected with kala-azar and HIV in our countries', said Dr Ermias Diro, Medical Coordinator, University of Gondar, Ethiopia. 'At the same time, the project will contribute to strengthening capacities in our treatment centres', he added.

The dissemination of AfriCoLeish project results will facilitate uptake of new treatments for kala-azar and for co-infection of kala-azar with HIV in East Africa, and will provide support to national programmes in the adoption of the new treatments. The improved treatment options will allow patients in East Africa to benefit from safe, cost-effective, and shorter treatments, while also reducing the treatment costs for health providers.
