This workshop is intended for African researchers who are involved in, or planning to become involved in, clinical research and development of traditional herbal medicines. It will cover the basics of setting the research question, designing a protocol, conducting a study, analysis and reporting. It will be facilitated by researchers from the University of Oxford and the University of the Western Cape.

Participants will be required to complete some online e-learning modules, read a few articles, and draft a protocol for their clinical study before the course. After the workshop, mentors will continue to support participants in the development of their protocols, applications for funding and ethical approval, and throughout the course of their research.

Places are free but participants will have to cover their own travel and accommodation while attending the training.

The MUTHI workshop will be followed by the Multilateral Initiative on Malaria (MIM) conference. Read more about the MIM. This includes a panel on traditional herbal medicines and malaria.
