The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative is launching its new Strategic Plan 2021-2028, we would like to invite you to join us in a virtual event to reflect on the challenges and drivers of change looming ahead.

DNDi was created in response to the frustration of clinicians and the desperation of patients faced with medicines that were ineffective, unsafe, unavailable, unaffordable, or that had never been developed at all. Nearly two decades later, we have grown into a network of more than 200 partner institutions that spans the globe, united in our pursuit of science for the people, driven by collaboration, not competition, and by medical needs, not profits.

The launch of our new strategic plan is an opportunity to look ahead and ask: what will the next decade look like? How can we deliver on our commitments to people whose diseases have been historically overlooked by the traditional R&D model?

Medicines for the People: What will the next decade look like?
