We put neglected communities at the heart of drug R&D

Advancing medical innovation from laboratory bench to patient bedside

Our teams have been working since 2003 to address gaps in the traditional biomedical R&D system that lead to serious unmet medical needs for neglected patients. Acting as a ‘conductor of a virtual orchestra’, DNDi collaborates with research partners around the world at all stages of the R&D process. Together, we’ve discovered, developed, and delivered new treatments that reduce illness, suffering, and death from some of the world’s most neglected diseases.

Treatments delivered

We have delivered twelve new treatments for six deadly diseases, saving millions of lives.

Target product profiles (TPPs)

TPPs serve to ensure that all products are designed from the start for the people and places that need them by describing the ideal specifications needed for a treatment.
