DNDi’s 20th year of driving medical innovation for the most neglected
Twenty years ago, it was shocking neglect that led to DNDi’s creation. Since 2003, we have delivered 12 affordable new treatments for six deadly diseases.
Throughout 2023, we’ve been joining with friends and allies to look back at the advances our partnerships have made over two decades of collaboration – renewing our commitments, taking stock of the road we’ve travelled and lessons we’ve learned, and examining the obstacles we’ve yet to overcome.
