6: Dengue, and the Future of DNDi

No existing medicine can defeat dengue. It’s one of the top ten threats to global public health, and as the effects of global warming begin to bite, the stage is set for its spread outward from the tropics. This looks like a job for medicine makers without borders, doesn’t it? Here to walk us through DNDi’s opening gambit against this neglected, climate-sensitive disease are Panisadee Avirutnan of Mahidol University and the DNDi’s own Isebela Ribeiro. Is there an open source path to victory here? Can the nonprofit model stop dengue in its tracks?

Panisadee Avirutnan
is an Associate Professor in the Department of Immunology at Mahidol University in Bangkok.

Isabela Ribeiro
is the Director of DNDi’s Viral Diseases Cluster.
