We work hand in hand with partners in low- and middle-income countries to power our progress and strengthen innovation ecosystems that put people’s needs first
We advocate for change
We speak out for policy change to enable more effective and equitable R&D and access to the fruits of science for all people in need, no matter their income or where they live
20 years of bringing the best science for the most neglected
20 years ago, it was shocking neglect that led to DNDi’s creation. Two decades later, we have proven that a collaborative, not-for-profit model for pharmaceutical R&D can deliver for neglected patients with 12 new treatments delivered for six deadly diseases.
Throughout 2023, we’ll be joining with our friends and allies to look back at the advances our partnerships have made and examining the obstacles we’ve yet to overcome.
