Malaria, diarrheal diseases and kala-azar, otherwise known as the black fever, are only some of the various "neglected diseases" the Institute for OneWorld Health has taken on.
New medicines are often patented, which makes reproducing and selling these drugs more difficult, harder to obtain and quite costly in certain parts of the world. As part of the social enterprises initiatives, the Institute for OneWorld Health collaborates with a wide array of institutions including universities, other pharmaceutical labs and foundations to focus on developing drugs and vaccines for diseases that no not affect developed countries as heavily as the developing ones.
Through the social business’s Access Program, the drugs are not only safe and more accessible but also more affordable to those who truly require the medication.
