R&D for Diarrhoeal Diseases
While preventive measures such as clean drinking water and sanitation can reduce the risk of infection from diarrheal diseases, research and development (R&D) of new tools is equally important, particularly for vaccines as they can prevent infection. This fact sheet examines funding for diarrheal disease R&D globally from 2007 to 2011 and discusses the need to increase the focus on under-funded disease areas, diversify funding sources, and balance funding distribution between basic research and product development.
