Abstract Submission
ACCT congress is an annual event and an international exchange platform to discuss about history and outlook for clinical trials in Africa.

This edition will focus on infectious diseases. One of the main purposes of the scientific communication sessions is to attract young scientists and PhD students so they can present their activities and share experience and ideas with senior researchers in clinical research. The selected participants will give oral presentations about clinical trials of vaccines, therapeutics and diagnostics. Safety, efficacy, immunology, pharmacokinetics and other facets of such trials may be highlighted. Furthermore, other scientific aspects relating to clinical trials such as molecular biology may be evaluated and presented.
