Strengthening Ethics and Responsible Conduct of Clinical Trials in East and Sub-Saharan Africa (SERCEA) Project

Shaping the Future of Clinical Research with Integrity and Ethics at its Heart

Welcome to the SERCEA Project, a pioneering initiative aimed at reinforcing ethical considerations and responsible conduct in clinical trials across East and Sub-Saharan Africa. With the rapid expansion of clinical research in the region, our mission is to ensure that these studies are underpinned by robust regulatory frameworks and are carried out with the utmost integrity and transparency.

Project at a Glance


Clinical trials are a cornerstone for the development of new medical interventions. However, with their growth in resource-limited settings, there’s an imperative need for modern regulatory structures and a strong ethical foundation.

To be the leading catalyst for ethical and responsible clinical research in East and Sub-Saharan Africa, fostering a culture where science thrives in harmony with community values and global standards.

Our Legacy:

SERCEA is more than just a project; it’s a movement. A movement aimed at creating a legacy where every clinical trial in East and Sub-Saharan Africa is a beacon of ethical research, offering hope and solutions to communities while respecting their rights and values.
