The Access and Delivery Partnership
New health technologies for tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases
TDR is part of a broad, multi-partner effort to strengthen capacity in low- and middle-income countries that improves access to and delivery of new health technologies. These technologies include drugs, diagnostic tools and vaccines that are relevant for the prevention, treatment or cure of tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases.
The Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP) is led and coordinated by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and funded by the government of Japan. The UNDP, TDR and PATH provide technical assistance to the focus countries. The ADP emphasizes consultation, collaboration and implementation with partner country governments and stakeholders. Best practices are being developed and disseminated on approaches that cross sectors, and are sustainable, rational and evidence-based.
Key principles are:
- Country ownership
- Cross-sectoral and multi-stakeholder collaborations
- South-south learning and cooperation
The ADP is a five-year project, running from April 2013 until March 2018. Focus countries are Tanzania, Indonesia and Ghana.
