The world’s poor are still not reaping the full benefits of research outcomes, despite an increasing global commitment to health research. While research funding to combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and TB has increased, other infectious diseases associated with poverty, such as Chagas disease, leishmaniasis, human African trypanosomiasis and Buruli ulcer, have not had the same attention. This key fact is at the heart of this report, which began after TDR initiated a concerted Stewardship effort to investigate and support more equitable approaches to funding and support for research.
