[ June 23, 2009 ]
Like last year in New York, Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) will bring together more than 150 scientists, researchers, academics and global health leaders from Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America on June 23, 2009, to discuss how international research partnerships can best develop and deliver new lifesaving drugs for neglected diseases.
This daylong meeting will bring together DNDi’s key partners in funding, private industry, and public institutions. As the event is hosted by DNDi Africa, DNDi expects many researchers and clinicians from endemic countries to attend, especially from Africa. These leading experts will have the opportunity to examine ongoing DNDi projects in drug research and development, access, and capacity strengthening.
This event will be an excellent forum to share knowledge on the realities of conducting research, managing drug development, ensuring access to treatment, and securing funding for neglected diseases.
