GAMS Belgium, FORWARD UK, HIMILO foundation in Netherlands and the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Antwerp have launched the first European Awareness Campaign to engage men in the prevention of female genital mutilation (FGM) in Europe.
Research at the Institute of Tropical Medicine Antwerp (ITM) and the University of Leuven (KU Leuven) shows that international guidelines for clinical trials are in dire need of an update. The good clinical practice (GCP) guidelines do not take local circumstances and the well-being of patients in developing countries properly into account.
2015 is a crucial year for development cooperation: on the one hand we reach the deadline for the millennium goals and on the other hand we will set course for a new orientation of sustainable development cooperation. Under the motto "Our world, our dignity, our future", the development cooperation of the EU and its Member States will be presented to the main public.
We post our activities on development cooperation on the European Year for Development website.
