Hosted by WHO-TDR IR Connect


Special Program of Implementation Research in Tropical Disease is a two year master program supported by Tropical Disease Research (TDR). It was initiated in 2015. Currently there are 4 batches. The students are from the countries in the SouthEast Asia Region (SEAR) and West Pacific Region (WPR).

Currently, the application of the fifth batch is open. With the increasing trend of the applicants per batch, we expect to have more applicants than the previous batch and more variety of country origin. Therefore, the management of the program is holding a Q&A session about the scholarship. This session aims to provide information related to the IR program and to encourage the potential applicants to apply for this scholarship program.
