Targeting control and elimination of NIDs through product-focused implementation research

Basic Information

Neglected Infectious Diseases (NIDs, also known as Neglected Tropical Diseases) are a diverse group of diseases that affect an estimated 1.2 billion people worldwide. These diseases disproportionately affect the world’s poor, causing significant mortality and morbidity. Global investment into research and development of new products for NIDs is limited and there is an urgent need to develop new or improved products and to optimise the use of existing products in order to achieve disease elimination.
