Drug discovery

Introduction

The developing world suffers the major burden of infectious disease, yet the range of drugs available for the treatment of many infectious diseases is limited. Moreover, some currently available drugs are difficult to access or administer in developing country settings, while others remain unaffordable at the patient or health facility level; meanwhile, there is increasing resistance to some drugs. Many new public-private partnerships are developing new drugs for the diseases of poverty and they need new leads to work from.
