Innovation for all
Technology, science and digital programs
Businesses can play a major part in responding to global health threats, such as the current Covid-19 pandemic. As a science and technology company, we are committed to developing and delivering unique, life-changing health products and technologies for low- and middle-income countries.
Focusing on technology, science and digital programs, we aim to strengthen health systems in these countries in a sustainable way, so they are better prepared to fight disease, leveraging our expertise and creating opportunities for shared value.
Our research and development
Our research and development focus for innovative treatments, diagnostics and vector control methods includes:
- Developing a potential new pediatric treatment option for schistosomiasis in children as of six years of age and under
- Developing a new active ingredient for the treatment and prevention of malaria
- Research programs through dedicated drug discovery platforms and preclinical activities for new potential candidates against schistosomiasis and malaria. We are committed to delivering our open innovation initiatives to support research in infectious diseases.
- Developing diagnostics for schistosomiasis and for malaria
Those programs are based on public-private partnerships with leading global health institutions and organizations in both developed and low- to middle-income countries. This enables us to maximize our impact in an economically viable way.
