The Career Development Fellows (CDF) program, developed with the help of the IFPMA, is conducted by the WHO’s Special Program for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases (TDR), in collaboration with pharmaceutical companies and is supported by The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF). CDF fellows from hospitals, academic and research institutions in low- and middle-income countries are selected to spend 12 months working in the clinical department of a host pharmaceutical company or product development partnership (PDPs) to receive training on R&D project management, Good Clinical Practice and regulatory requirements. The CDF program is intended to develop the individual capacity and careers of researchers, which is in turn expected to have impact on their home institutions and countries. To date, 8 IFPMA member companies have participated in the program.
