The International Society for Neglected Tropical Diseases presented ISNTD d3 to address the past shortfalls in R&D productivity and drive the development of future paths towards successful gains in the control, treatment or evaluation of NTDs.

ISNTD d3 brought together experts from within drug discovery and clinical trials to drive the debate and foster new partnerships & alliances leading to tangible outcomes in terms of new therapies to combat these diseases.

ISNTD d3 aimed to accelerate the networking required for the development & distribution of new or improved drugs, vaccines, microbicides and diagnostics against the NTDs by bringing focus onto the phase II and III clinical trials taking place or set to take place potentially in affected countries.
