Alliance against poverty-related diseases
FAIRMED 15 Swiss organisations, including FAIRMED, are joining forces in the fight against neglected tropical diseases (“NTDs” for short). Representatives from research and development, non-governmental organisations and the pharmaceutical industry met in Bern on 12 January 2017. An alliance against poverty-related diseases, which combines the knowledge of the participants and exploits synergies, was discussed.
(...) The alliance of 15 Swiss organisations will set an important example, as stressed by FAIRMED’s managing director René Stäheli: “A collaboration on this scale has enormous potential.” It is gratifying that so many players in Switzerland would commit themselves to eliminating NTDs, continued Stäheli.
