Fighting neglected tropical diseases

One billion people worldwide suffer from debilitating communicable diseases which occur exclusively in developing countries1. There is a pressing need to reduce the global impact of these “neglected” tropical diseases.

Through a partnership with the World Health Organisation, Sanofi has been actively engaged in the fight against these “neglected” tropical diseases since 2001, with a contribution of USD 100 million in financial support and drug donations for the period 2001-2020.
