DNDi Networking Event in Seoul

Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi) is a collaborative, patients’ needs-driven, non-profit drug R&D organization that is developing new treatments for neglected diseases. DNDi is working on the following diseases: Leishmaniasis, Sleeping sickness (human African trypanosomiasis), Chagas disease, Paediatric HIV, Filarial diseases, Mycetoma, Hepatitis C. DNDi has created an innovative R&D model by pooling expertise from around the world to address the needs of patients suffering from neglected diseases and delivered seven new treatments to millions of patients. Driven by the public sector, a variety of players such as private corporates, foundations and other institutional donors raise awareness of the need to research and develop drugs for neglected diseases. Please refer to the attached profile for more information about DNDi, www.dndi.org.

DNDi has established a network of esteemed partners across the world including South-Korea. DNDi representatives visit Seoul to promote their mission and vision to Korean business partners. On behalf of DNDi, Swiss Business Hub Korea, part of the Embassy of Switzerland, organizes a networking event to introduce DNDi activities and cooperation opportunities.

Please join us for this unique event and share DNDi’s vision to help people suffering from neglected diseases. Thank you very much.
