DNDi welcomes Malaysia’s move to secure access to more affordable treatments for hepatitis C


About DNDi

The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is a patients’ needs-driven, non-profit drug research and development organization that develops safe, effective and affordable medicines for neglected diseases that afflict millions of the world’s poorest people. Since its inception in 2003, DNDi has focused on developing new treatments for the most neglected patients suffering from diseases such as sleeping sickness, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, malaria, filarial diseases, mycetoma, paediatric HIV, and hepatitis C. In 2016, DNDi and the World Health Organization launched the Global Antibiotic Research & Development Partnership with the aim of developing and delivering new treatments for infections where drug resistance is present or emerging, or for which inadequate treatment exists.
