"The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is a not-for-profit research and development organization that discovers, develops, and delivers safe, effective, and affordable treatments for neglected patients. Since its creation in 2003, DNDi has joined with public and private partners across the globe to deliver twelve new field-adapted and affordable treatments for six deadly diseases, saving millions of lives.

Driven by the medical needs of poor and marginalized people, DNDi leverages the power of innovation, open science, partnerships, and advocacy to foster a more inclusive, sustainable, and equitable global system for biomedical innovation and treatment access."
