Over 1 billion people, including 500 million children, in the poorest regions of the world, are affected by neglected diseases that debilitate, disfigure or kill.

DNDi’s research and development approach is driven by the real day-to-day needs of patients and healthcare providers.

By connecting public and private partners, DNDi synergizes expertise and capitalizes upon the best science. 

DNDi also works to strengthen the health R&D field in the countries where the diseases occur in order to reinforce capacities for sustainable change.

Major progress has been made with six new treatments made available since the creation of DNDi, in 2003. However, major breakthroughs are still needed to treat neglected patients: Entirely new, affordable, and adapted drugs will change the lives of millions of people.
