According to WHO, neglected tropical diseases blight the lives of more than 1 billion of the world's poorest 2.7 billion people. There are 149 countries and territories where neglected tropical diseases are endemic, at least 100 of which are endemic for 2 or more of these diseases, and 30 countries that are endemic for 6 or more. These diseases not only survive and spread in conditions of poverty, they also anchor large populations in poverty. Neglected tropical diseases can cause blindness and deform in ways that hinder economic productivity and cancel out chances for a normal social life. They can maim, debilitate, and kill. The consequences are costly for societies and for health care. Such diseases linked to poverty have traditionally offered little incentive to industry to invest in developing new or better products for a market that cannot pay. In 2010, WHO set out a clear strategy for scaled up intervention which has as its goal the elimination of several of these diseases by 2020. WIPO Re:Search supports this goal.

About WIPO Re:Search
WIPO Re:Search was established in October 2011 with the mission of accelerating the discovery and development of medicines, vaccines, and diagnostics to develop new solutions for people affected by neglected tropical diseases, malaria, and tuberculosis by making intellectual property and know-how available to the global health research community. The diseases targeted by WIPO Re:Search are those listed by WHO as neglected, and also include tuberculosis and malaria. That list is comprised of: buruli ulcer, Chagas disease (American trypanosomiasis), cysticercosis, dengue/dengue hemorrhagic fever, dracunculiasis (guinea-worm disease), echinococcosis, endemic treponematoses (yaws), foodborne trematode infections (clonorchiasis, opistorchiasis, fascioliasis, and paragonimiasis), human African trypanosomiasis (African sleeping sickness), leishmaniasis, leprosy, lymphatic filariasis, malaria, onchocerc
