Schistosomiasis research funding: the TDR (Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases) contribution



Schistosomiasis research funding: the TDR (Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases) contribution



Memorias do Instituto Oswaldo Cruz 87(Suppl. 4): 153-161



In spite of the recent decline in financial support on the part of some major donors, the overall international support for schistosomiasis research in current US dollars has been holding steady. However, when adjusted for inflation, a clear decline-during the last decade appears and only in a few countries has this decline been balanced by increased national or bilateral funding. The prevailing level of support for schistosomiasis research is barely sufficient to maintain established laboratories and researchers, and highlights the need to attract young investigators. The important goal of bringing a new generation of scientists into the field of schistosomiasis can only be achieved by a considerable long-term increase in funding, both at the national and the international levels. A break-through in current research emphasizing improved techniques for control is needed to encourage donors and governments to improve the situation.
