International Center for Diarrheal Disease Research

About International Center for Diarrheal Disease Research

We are one of the world’s leading global health research institutes.
Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, we are committed to solving public health problems facing low- and middle-income countries through innovative scientific research – including laboratory-based, clinical, epidemiological and health systems research. By developing, testing and assessing the implementation of interventions specifically designed for resource-poor settings, we aim to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in the world’s poorest nations. For more than 50 years, we have been carrying out high-quality research and promoting the uptake of evidence-based interventions. Our initial focus was on diarrhoeal disease, but we now study multiple infectious diseases, other threats to public health, and methods of healthcare delivery. Our work has had a profound impact on health policy and practice both locally and globally – and this remains our key objective for the future.
