On September 26th 2012, DSW launched a specially commissioned report from Policy Cures, titled "Saving Lives and Creating Impact: EU Investment in Poverty-Related and Neglected Diseases", in the framework of an event hosted by the Member of European Parliament Maria da Graça Carvalho.

Ms. Carvalho is the Rapporteur on the specific programme of Horizon 2020, the next European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation which will guide the allocation of EU funding for research and innovation for the period 2014 through 2020, including all funding for research and development (R&D) into Poverty-Related and Neglected Diseases (PRNDs).

Against this backdrop, the new study quantifies for the first time the domestic benefits the EU derives from public investment in poverty-related and neglected diseases, including at least 13,000 jobs created between and 2002 and 2010 and a further €1.05 in investments into the Union for each €1 of European public PRND R&D spending.

This video is a call to action for greater investment in this area.
