With the outbreak of Diarrheal epidemic by a new strain of cholera bacteria (Vibrio Cholerae 0139), there was an urgent need for collaboration of research on the new emerging diseases. Following this, a proposal from the National Institute of Cholera & Enteric Diseases (NICED), a request for assistance was made to the Japanese Government. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), which is the official agency implementing Japanese Technical Cooperation Projects, interacted with the Indian Government and Indian Council for Medical Research for preparing a project plan. As a result, a Technical Cooperation Project was launched in 1998 titled “Project for Prevention of Emerging Diarrhoeal Diseases Phase-I”. The first phase of the project from 1998-2003 was extended for further five yea rs to achieve the objectives fully. Since the facilities of NICED were inadequate, the State of Art Diarrheal Diseases Research & Control Centre has come up now.
