Research for implementation to tackle infectious diseases of poverty

Building on our 40-year history, TDR supports research in the countries where the diseases are prevalent. Specifically, TDR supports:

  • Research that improves access to health interventions to accelerate universal health coverage.
  • Local and national level research to generate evidence that is useful for policy making and for implementation of new solutions responding to country needs.
  • Multi-disciplinary, multi-sectoral approaches to research and community engagement to develop locally relevant solutions. (This includes working with the environment, education, development, and agriculture sectors and behavioral sciences.)
