"Five women will conduct research projects in the areas of cancer, malaria, respiratory diseases and genetics over the next three years, in Cape Verde, Angola and Mozambique, within the scope of the "We´Search – Support for clinical research projects in the PALOP", in a partnership between the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the La Caixa Foundation", the two entities announced this Thursday in a statement sent to Lusa.

The projects now awarded were selected "among 75 applications and focus on a set of chronic diseases that particularly affect the population of these countries", the text also adds, which explains the objective of each of the projects: "strengthening skills in clinical research in research centers, reinforcing knowledge about the diagnosis and treatment of these diseases".

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Spanish La Caixa Foundation have been collaborating, since 2015, in the area of health research in Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP).

At the end of 2022, they signed a collaboration protocol to develop a program that encourages the countries' scientific community to carry out research projects that contribute to improving the provision of healthcare.

"This is how the We'Search program was born, a competition to strengthen scientific institutions and clinical research projects in the PALOP, in an initiative that represents a total commitment worth 750 thousand euros for the two foundations", the statement said.
