Launch of the website

July 6th, 2015

WHO/TDR is launching a new site on the programme “Population Health Vulnerabilities to Vector-Borne Diseases: Increasing Resilience Under Climate Change Conditions in Africa”. This is a joint TDR/IDRC initative. The new website will complement the private community platform that is currently supporting work on the project. The soft launch takes place in Geneva in mid-July at a meeting that brings together programme participants from across Africa.

The website is an initiative by TDR/WHO to make its work accessible to a broader range of audiences.

Currently, the programme has an extensive private platform that faciliates communication between the researchers, academics and experts involved. Now, information and updates about the work undertaken in the programme, as well as each of its five respective parts, can be accessed through the new public online site. More information about the project can also be found on
