ABOUT OPEN SOURCE PHARMA FOUNDATION (OSPF)
Affordable medicine for all. Linux for drugs.
Open Source Pharma Foundation seeks to create affordable new treatments in areas of public health need, and to create a new model of drug discovery. We are doing so by using open source methodologies of computation, collaboration, crowdsourcing, transparency, and open intellectual property. Our goal is to cut costs by 90% and development time by 50% against the standard big pharma model. We will address areas where big pharma finds an insufficient market incentive to develop new cures.
Our initial project – the world’s first open source clinical trial, seeks to repurpose existing generic drugs against tuberculosis, which kills more people than any other infectious disease in the world.
OSPF is supported by eminent philanthropies such as the Tata Trusts and the India Health Fund, which is a spinoff of the Geneva-based Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. Our team includes former senior executives and scientists from major pharmaceutical corporations.
OSPF is a nonprofit organization with global reach, headquartered in Bangalore. When you join our team, you become part of our community. We share a commitment and dedication to fulfill our vision of Affordable medicine for all.
