Our responsibility is working for the future.
Forgotten or neglected diseases (ND) must be part of modern healthcare systems. With it millions of people will have access to an efficient health care system and this enables a dignified life with prospects.
Today’s pharmaceutical research for new medicinal active ingredients is very expensive and tedious. Despite recent developments, current and urgent questions remain open in healthcare. We are convinced that in addition to traditional finance, there will be additional intensive research and alternative approaches, to be able to respond to the future challenges of healthcare. Patients with a rare disease have the right to treatment. Sustainability is an important criterion for us, as well as cost and user-friendliness. In addition, philanthropy plays an important role for us in our decision making process.
