The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is a patient-needs driven, not-for-profit research and development (R&D) organization that develops safe, effective, and affordable treatments for neglected diseases that afflict millions of the world’s poorest people, notably human African trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness), leishmaniasis, Chagas disease, paediatric HIV, filaria, and malaria.
The initiative was founded in 2003 by the Brazilian Oswaldo Cruz Foundation/Farmanguinhos, the Indian Council for Medical Research, the Kenya Medical Research Institute, the Ministry of Health of Malaysia, the Pasteur Institute in France, and Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF). The World Health Organization’s Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases is a permanent observer.
MSF is part of the scientific advisory group and serves on the board of directors.
