Special Program for Research and Training in TropicalDiseases (TDR) is co-sponsored by UNICEF, UNDP, the World Bank and WHO which is the Executing Agency.  The objective of the TDR - through research to reduce the burden of illness among poor people in poor countries and thereby assist them to lead healthier and more productive lives - supports the Bank's mission to reduce poverty. With the recognition that health directly impacts on human development, the World Bank reinforcesTDR's inter-sectoral research links, bridging finance and systems activities and facilitating links to related sectors such as agriculture, education, science and technology, etc.
