Our governance, our strength
TDR’s governance is at the core of our success. The Joint Coordinating Board (JCB) allows for governments and institutions of disease-affected countries, UN co-sponsors, development partners and other global stakeholders to come together to shape and oversee TDR’s work. This is complemented by managerial and financial oversight of the Standing Committee, and scientific oversight provided by the Scientific and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) and scientific working groups.
TDR is co-sponsored by UNICEF, UNDP, the World Bank and WHO, and operates within a broad framework of intergovernmental and interagency cooperation and participation. The executing agency is the World Health Organization (WHO).
