OUR VISION IS TO REDUCE ILLNESS AND DEATH ASSOCIATED WITH FUNGAL DISEASES WORLDWIDE.

Introduction

Fungal Infections are neglected diseases worldwide. Globally, over 300 million people of all ages suffer from a serious fungal infection every year. Of these over 1.35 million people are estimated to die. In comparison deaths from malaria and tuberculosis are 1.2 and 1.4 million respectively. Most serious fungal infections are ‘hidden’ because of other health problems such as, AIDS, cancer, transplantation, or immunosuppression. How do you feed your children when your blindness stops you from working? Tens of thousands lose their eyesight every year from fungal keratitis. It is rarely diagnosed and treated. Serious fungal infections require specialized testing.
