Medicines Development for Global Health

River blindness, a debilitating disease that causes disfigurement and blindness and affects some of the poorest communities in the world, threatens 200 million people. It's one of more than 20 diseases that the World Health Organization considers a "Neglected Tropical Disease" that don't receive enough investment, or for which medication is very hard to obtain. Medicines Development for Global Health is a nonprofit biotech company that works to cure those diseases, and in 2018, it received FDA approval to treat river blindness with an existing drug, the first new treatment for river blindness in 20 years.
