A product development partnership (PDP) is a non-profit organization that develops innovative and affordable medicines and tools for populations affected by poverty-related and neglected tropical diseases.
 
PDPs focus on unmet patient needs by designing products for use in low- and middle-income countries with high disease burdens. PDPs can work from early discovery to product delivery implementation, covering either specific research gaps or the full innovation cycle.
 
PDPs employ a portfolio approach to R&D to accelerate product development, pursuing multiple strategies for a disease area and allowing only the most promising products to move forward.
