International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh


International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) is one of the world’s leading global health research institutes.

Based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, ICDDR,B is 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, it aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in the world’s poorest nations. For more than 50 years, ICDDR,B  has been carrying out high-quality research and promoting the uptake of evidence-based interventions. Its initial focus was on diarrhoeal disease, but it now studies multiple infectious diseases, other threats to public health, and methods of healthcare delivery. The work of ICDDR,B has had a profound impact on health policy and practice both locally and globally – and this remains its key objective for the future.
