Furthering scientific knowledge knows no frontiers. Therefore, Inserm would like to reaffirm that the countries of Africa are – more than ever – key scientific partners and that:

  • Inserm has long been committed to numerous research projects with African countries concerning a variety of diseases, including Ebola, malaria, and HIV.





  • Inserm, through the Reacting consortium, has an ethical charter for research conduct in emerging infectious disease epidemics.
