of which close to EUR 400 million has already been secured to date. We will stay focused on the key elements that have been essential to our success: our partnerships with private sector actors, key for us to access the necessary expertise and data to bring a treatment through to the hands of patients; the support
of public actors, which has been the lifeline of our endeavours; and the participation of research communities and civil society in endemic countries to ensure patients’ needs remain at the forefront of our efforts. For this particular reason, this business plan will be translated into a regional strategic plan, with the expansion and development of
DNDi’s regional offices, particularly those in neglected disease-endemic regions. These close associations, for some now more than a decade long, will remain a fundamental part of the set-up of DNDi and assure the process of mutual learning for change for the benefit of the most neglected populations in the most neglected health and social systems.
