The Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme
The Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme carries out health research and trains clinical and laboratory scientists from Malawi and abroad. Officially established in 1995, it employs more than 200 people, including around 35 scientists, of whom the majority are Malawian. In 2008, the Programme was awarded £8.6 million of core funding by the Trust.
The Programme has strong links with the University of Liverpool and the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine, and works closely with the Malawian Ministry of Health on Malawi’s malaria, HIV and tuberculosis control programmes.
