CERCLE is made up of institutions and individuals – from research centres, laboratories, and foundations to physicians, academics, and pharmacologists.

We’ve grown from our 77 original members to a coalition of more than 900. We’re working together to ensure that the needs of people in low-resource settings are represented and prioritized in the global research agenda.

Coalition members commit to:

  • Leverage global expertise and promote partnerships to support impactful research
  • Promote open sharing of research knowledge and data, and remove obstacles to timely research
  • Champion equitable and affordable access to vaccines, diagnostics and treatments
  • Advocate and address key priorities for equitable research funding
