Discoveries where they're needed the most

 In regions where the need is the greatest, diseases causing blindness, permanent disability, and death have gone largely unaddressed by the scientific community. Yet, the need is urgent for millions living in vulnerable conditions. 

As scientists united by a vision of accessible and affordable treatments for everyone, our goal is to combine scientific innovation with practical approaches. We are currently working on novel malaria treatments and on diagnostics to identify worm infections.

We at Drugs & Diagnostics for Tropical Diseases want to be part of the solution but we need your help too.
