DNDi Annual Report 2012
Greetings from DNDi
marks its 10-year anniversary this year. With the publication of the 2012 Annual Report
, we have taken the opportunity to share some perspectives on the past decade of neglected disease research and development, including changes in the landscape, the lessons we have learned, and the need to continue our efforts as we move beyond the initial incremental improvements delivered thus far and face the challenges of getting new chemical entities to the end of the pipeline.
Over the last year, we have consolidated DNDi
’s scientific portfolio, strengthened and expanded our partnerships, and have benefitted from the renewed and sustained commitment of our donors to achieve our objectives.
At the core of our work, the unchanging reason for what we do, are the patients and their specific and urgent needs. It is with this in mind that we decided to mark our anniversary with a special website under the theme Connect to Fight Neglect
, which aims to bring to the fore all of the voices in our field, from patients to policy makers.
Most importantly, I thank you for your support and partnership in 2012 and over the past 10 years in helping us to bring new treatments to neglected patients, and look forward to our continued collaboration.
Dr Bernard Pécoul
Executive Director, DNDi
