Since 2003, the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative has developed 12 treatments for 6 deadly diseases, saving millions of lives.
We innovate to save lives
We develop urgently needed treatments for neglected patients and work to ensure they’re affordable, available, and adapted to the communities who need them
We foster sustainable solutions
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
Out of the Shadows: The story of DNDi
Filmed to mark DNDi’s 20th anniversary, our newest film ‘Out of the Shadows’ tells the story of DNDi researchers around the world working to develop treatments for patients who have lived in the shadows for too long. In a world affected by climate change, conflict, and economic instability, we must continue innovating together to ensure the most vulnerable people are no longer neglected.
