Tanzania: African Malaria Institute Gets $4 Million for Health Research
The African Malaria Network Trust (AMANET) has secured a US$4.1million grant to strengthen institutional capacity in health research ethics in Africa (HRE).

The fund will also be used to foster and promote discussion, research and publications that highlight African perspectives.

AMANET's communications officer, Mr. Charles Wanga told Business Week in Dar es Salaam last week that the grant secured from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation would focus on HRE review process across the sub-Saharan Africa, particularly in institutions undertaking malaria intervention trials.

Wanga said that worsening malaria situation in sub-Saharan Africa, unprecedented progress and promise from biomedical research discoveries; and the need to bridge the malaria funding gap was the motivation behind the fund.

"Consequently, more malaria research and trials involving African and non-African scientists and institutions will have to be undertaken in Africa," he said.
