BEST SCIENCE FOR THE MOST NEGLECTED
We develop lifesaving medicines for people with neglected diseases around the world
Since 2003, the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative has developed 8 treatments for 5 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 partner for impact
We conduct research where it’s needed most, utilizing and strengthening R&D capacity in countries affected by neglected diseases
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
‘We need research here in Africa, so that as clinicians we can give the best options to people with COVID-19.’
Dr Borna Nyaoke-Anoke presents ANTICOV, the largest clinical trial in Africa to treat COVID-19 cases before they become severe and could overwhelm fragile health systems.
We’re coordinating this clinical trial taking place at 19 sites in 13 countries, bringing together 26 African and global R&D organizations.
