African Network for Drugs and Diagnostics Innovation (ANDI)
Vision: "Creating a sustainable platform for R&D innovation in Africa to address Africa’s own health needs"
The African Network for Drugs and Diagnostics Innovation (ANDI) promotes African-led product R&D innovation through the discovery, development and delivery of affordable new tools, including those based on traditional medicines. Initiated at TDR in 2008, it is now hosted at the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa (UNECA) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A task force guides the strategic and business plan through a broad consultative process and helps establish the funding.
