SWITZERLAND: CORRECTION: WHO Agrees to Address Research on Neglected Diseases


CDC Prevention News Update (05.30.12)

The PNU summary of the Agence France Presse article 'WHO Agrees to Address Research on Neglected Diseases' included incorrect information about the Drugs for Neglected Diseases initiative (DNDi). DNDi is an independent, nonprofit research and development (R&D) organization formed in 2003 by seven founding partners. The Consultative Expert Working Group on Research and Development: Financing and Coordination (CEWG) is an expert working group formed at the World Health Assembly in 2010 that led to the recommendations for the recent WHO discussions on a global health R&D convention.
