Innovation for NTDs in the Next Decade: The Critical role of African Leadership
On 30 March 2021, DNDi officially launched its 2021-2028 Strategic Plan following consultations with partners. The plan charts an eight-year journey for our work with neglected patients. We aim to deliver 25 new treatments in our first 25 years. To achieve elimination and control of neglected diseases, the critical role of partnerships and commitment by African leaders in innovation and open science cannot be understated.

The DNDi Africa Regional office invites you to join a virtual discussion to unpack the Role of African leadership in innovation for neglected tropical diseases on 29 September 2021, from 3:00 to 4:30 pm EAT. During this event, we will also launch the DNDi strategic plan to our regional partners.
