The COVID-19 pandemic exposed deficiencies in African health systems, underscoring the demand for skilled female Ph.D. scientists in clinical research. In 2020, CANTAM, with support from EDCTP, initiated the 'Women in Science' female Ph.D. fellowship program. This program aims to address discipline gaps in the Central region by supporting female Ph.Ds and MSc’s in health sciences while enhancing the mentorship program for women scientists in Central Africa
