International Centre For Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh established in 1978 as the successor of the Cholera Research Laboratory created in 1960 to study the epidemiology, treatment, and prevention of cholera. The Centre is an independent, international, non-profit organization for research, education, training, clinical services, and information dissemination. Researchers at the Centre have made major scientific achievements in the prevention and management of diarrhoeal diseases, maternal and child health, nutrition, and population sciences. The website provides information on the Centre's various research projects, policies, education and training opportunities, annual reports (archived since 1997), lists of publications, collaborations, and overview of programs, and the periodicals Journal of Health, Population and Nutrition (archived since June 2000) and Svāsthya saṃlāpa (Health discussion, in Bengali; archived since 2001).
