The vision of Developing Excellence in Leadership, Training, and Science (DELTAS) Africa Initiative is to support the African-led development of world-class researchers and research leaders in Africa. This new generation of scientists will play a major part in shaping and driving a locally relevant health research agenda in Africa, contributing to improved health and development in the continent.

The initiative builds on previous Wellcome Trust programs in Africa, which have brought together scientists from the East and West of the continent, developed career structures for young researchers, and enhanced research capacity. DELTAS Africa marks a change in direction and resources for this activity, with its center of gravity moving towards Africa. It will focus on the development of scientific excellence that promotes research leadership and capacity within the continent and will include well-resourced and structured opportunities for training abroad.
