The Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is an independent, non-profit partnership working to research and develop new and improved treatments for neglected diseases such as kala azar (visceral leishmaniasis), sleeping sickness (human African trypanosomiasis), Chagas disease and malaria. DNDi recently expanded its portfolio to include paediatric HIV and specific helminth-related infections.
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, France, and MSF. The World Health Organization’s Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases is a permanent observer.
