The Malawi-Liverpool-Wellcome Trust Clinical Research Programme

Wellcome Trust support in Malawi
Malawi is a small country with a huge desire to improve the lives of its population. This spirit is reflected in its highly motivated scientists and healthcare workers, who, alongside international teams, are tackling HIV/AIDS, malaria, tuberculosis, pneumonia and other healthcare challenges that face one of the world’s poorest countries.

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.
