Excerpt
Foreword The UNDPtWorld BanWHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) is a globally coordinated effort to bring the resources of modern science to bear on the control of major tropical diseases. The Programme has two interdependent objectives: To develop new methods of preventing, diagnosing and treating selected tropical diseases, methods that would be applicable, acceptable and affordable by developing countries, require minimal skills or supervision and be readily integrated into the health services of these countries; To strengthen - through training in biomedical and social sciences and through support to institutions - the capability of developing countries to undertake the research required to develop these new disease control technologies. Research is conducted on a global basis by multidisciplinary teams of researchers on the six diseases sclectçd for special attention: malaria, schistosomiasis, filariasis (including onchocerciasis), the trypanosomiases (both African sleeping sickness and the American form, Chagas disease), the leishmaniases and leprosy, and trans-diseases areas, including Applied Field Research. The Gender and Tropical Diseases Task Force is one of the initiatives of the Applied Field Research Steering Committee.
