Grants and other funding activities

TDR funds specific research projects in diseases of poverty, which cover infectious diseases and the culture and environment that contribute to these problems. We also support the development of individuals and institutions in the countries where these diseases are prevalent.

More information on TDR priorities can be found in the TDR strategy 2018-2023 and TDR's Portfolio Prioritization Model.
