EMPIRICAL is a research project funded by EDCTP2 programme, which aims to promote European and Developing Countries clinical trial partnership.

The overarching goal of EMPIRICAL is to develop an empirical treatment against cytomegalovirus and tuberculosis in severe pneumonia in HIV-infected infants through a clinical trial that will be conducted in 7 African countries. It also aims to improve capacity building in order to give developing countries the possibility to carry out clinical trials according to good standards.
