Developing World Health has been established with the primary aim of addressing the need for new, safe and effective treatments for malaria, neglected tropical diseases such as trypanosomiasis (sleeping sickness) and related serious infectious diseases. It will build on the historic contribution and influence that Scottish scientists and physicians such as Dr David Livingston and Sir Patrick Manson have had in Tropical Medicine and the new aspirations of Scotland to make a national contribution to global poverty reduction and development (as evidenced by the Scotland:Malawi Partnership). ,,The aims of Developing World Health are to help develop new innovative treatments for malaria and several of the neglected diseases which affect the developing world, particularly Africa. We aim to fast-track new medical treatments primarily focusing on key areas of unmet clinical need, where current treatments are either, toxic, ineffective, or simply inaccessible.,
