Our R&D portfolio for mycetoma
What we have achieved
We are bringing much needed attention to mycetoma to help end the neglect of people with the disease.
Advocating for one of the world’s most neglected diseases
Mycetoma was added to WHO’s official list of neglected tropical diseases in 2016. We also endorsed a ‘Call for Action’ to accelerate global efforts to address the needs of people living with mycetoma.
What we are doing for people living with mycetoma
Our aim is to develop a safe, effective, and affordable treatment that is suitable for use in rural areas.
Building capacity, uniting expertise
Research platforms and consortiums that bring together researchers and strengthen research capacities in low- and middle-income countries are central to our virtual R&D model.
Partnering for patients
Collaboration is an essential part of how we work. We have forged a diverse range of alliances and research collaborations with over 200 partners in more than 40 countries.
