The Access and Delivery Partnership (ADP) brings together the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR) and PATH in a unique partnership that helps identify and strengthen related capacity gaps in low- and middle-income countries in an innovative and integrated way.
ADP interventions and activities reflect the specific and current needs for improving health and development outcomes through building strong, resilient and sustainable health systems.
The Government of Japan has funded this innovative approach to combatting tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases, and supporting COVID-19 responses, since the inception of ADP in 2013.
The ADP partners are focused on addressing broad-based and immediate health system needs. Maintaining the most critical prevention activities and health care services – and minimizing disruptions during the pandemic – also helps reduce the indirect impacts of COVID-19, particularly among poor and marginalized populations.
