PediCAP: New website is online!

01 Jul, 2019

We are pleased to announce the launch of the brand new PediCAP project website!

Take a look at this new website, which describes the background, goals and the different activities foreseen in the PediCAP project, as well as an overview of the project consortium.

The colorful style and the structure are similar to other projects websites created by Penta, such as Odyssey and REACH, all contributing to our brand and distinguishing us in the field of paediatric research. As a novelty, we have included a roadmap in order to make the project development and its milestone achievements easier to follow.

Please also visit the Our Activities – PediCAP page if you would like to know more about the project!

PediCAP is a collaboration between Penta and partners in Uganda, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Belgium, Switzerland and the UK, bringing together different paediatric groups into a new consortium.

Funded by the EDCTP programme, PediCAP is a 5-year research project focused on antibiotic therapy of severe and very severe childhood community acquired pneumonia. Through a collaboration between African and European partners, it aims to provide data on optimal duration and oral step-down therapy for paediatric community acquired pneumonia.
