TDR Summary Report 2004-2005
This brief Summary Report covers the output of the 2004-2005 biennium and identifies ongoing activities that we believe will lead to notable achievements for the coming two years, 2006-07.
In the first section of this report, TDR has selected four major examples of impact that resulted this year from many years of attention and commitment by the people and organizations whom we support and with whom we work.
You will see within these topics a wide range of diseases. The main aspect linking these diseases is their association with poverty. Appropriately directed research can help break the cycle of poverty and disease that cripples many communities.
It is important to maintain focus on the immediate deliverables and outputs of our research activities, but ultimately, our goal is to have an impact – on human health and well being, and on the capacity of developing countries to drive and implement the innovations.
