The Wellcome Trust is pleased to support the African Union’s recent call to
establish the Alliance for Accelerating Excellence in Science in Africa
(AESA), to be led by the African Academy of Sciences (AAS) and the New
Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).

*​​The announcement marks a major step towards advancing global health and
development across the continent.* The Wellcome Trust, the Gates Foundation
and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) are funding the
development of AESA and share their vision of supporting the next
generation of outstanding African researchers, who will help solve some of
the continent’s greatest health and development challenges.
