Changing the way the world treats the poor and the sick
Today, vast disparities of wealth and opportunity divide us. Perhaps nowhere is that disparity wider and more shocking than health care. Infectious diseases that have been banished from wealthier nations continue to kill millions among the poorest people on the planet. What's even worse, these are illnesses that can easily be prevented or treated.
At OneWorld Health we believe in health equity. We believe that the promise of safe, effective, and affordable medicine must reach everyone, not just a privileged few. Those of us with the ability to do research and develop new medicines, and to provide life-saving treatments to the world's least fortunate, can and should do much more.
Our challenge is clear. Bring the technology, medical science, and insight of the developed world to the poorest, sickest people in the developing world. We work to bridge the gap between these worlds by developing safe, effective, and affordable new medicines for neglected diseases. To ensure we can reach out to the sick, we work with global health community to address issues related to access to medicines and global health advocacy.
By fighting neglected killers, we work to fulfill the promise of medicine for everyone.
