United Nations Development Programme
UNDP works in some 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results
World Health Organization
WHO is the directing and coordinating authority on international health within the United Nations’ system, working with 194 Member States in a shared commitment to achieve better health for everyone, everywhere. WHO supports countries as they coordinate the efforts of governments and partners to attain health objectives, supporting national health policies and strategies.
The Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR)
TDR is a global programme of scientific collaboration that helps facilitate, support and influence efforts to combat diseases of poverty. TDR is hosted by the World Health Organization (WHO), and is sponsored by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UNDP, the World Bank and WHO.
PATH: Driving transformative innovation to save lives
PATH is an international nongovernmental organization that drives transformative innovation to save lives and improve health, especially among women and children. PATH works to accelerate innovation across five platforms – vaccines, drugs, diagnostics, devices, and system and service innovations – that harness entrepreneurial insight, scientific and public health expertise, and passion for health equity. By mobilizing partners around the world, PATH takes innovation to scale, working alongside countries primarily in Africa and Asia to tackle their greatest health needs. Working together with countries, PATH delivers measurable results that disrupt the cycle of poor health.
Government of Japan
The collaboration between the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Government of Japan is a strategic partnership to promote research and development, and to increase access to and delivery of health technologies used to address neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), tuberculosis (TB) and malaria. This innovative partnership comprises two major complementary components: the Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP) and the Global Health Innovative Technology (GHIT) Fund. Recognizing widespread capacity gaps in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) to effectively access and deliver needed new health technologies, the ADP supports countries to strengthen their capacities to address bottlenecks in this area.
