Through independent research into child health, Penta is one of the most prominent scientific organizations dedicated to children’s health.
We are an alliance of people united by a common purpose: to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment of infection in children.
Our global independent scientific network brings together key stakeholders in paediatric infectious disease, including researchers, clinicians, regulatory bodies, the pharmaceutical industry and patients and their families, to develop and deliver world class research and training to drive contemporary understanding and practice related to infections in children.
We are involved in research projects globally that operate along the scientific priorities: HIV & viral infection, severe sepsis and antimicrobial resistance, infection in pregnancy and neglected or emerging childhood infections. We do not just carry out clinical trials, but cohort studies collaboration and pregnancy studies.
Our research embraces basic, pharmacological, clinical, social and population sciences.
Our operational model is based on networking, independence, transparency and commitment.
We continue to build on our existing partnerships and seek out potential new collaborations to further our work.
