Artemis One Health
Translating research in AFFORDABLE PRODUCTS
“Health systems in many disease endemic countries are noticeably weak. Patients either cannot afford or do not have access to adequate drugs, while human and other resources are overburdened by the volume of needs (global report for research on infectious disease of poverty)”. The need to develop systems that make treatments available for neglected diseases is substantial.
Despite major progress during the past ten years in initiating and expanding programs targeting the neglected tropical diseases, many drugs or vaccines face major challenges to scaling up.
This inability to bring affordable and effective products on the market impacts hundreds of millions of people, especially in developing countries, impeding the access to simple interventions that promote health and prevent morbidity and unnecessary mortality. Artemis investigates barriers to innovations and develops strategies to overcome the barriers and stimulate marketing of products.
