The world goals are 17 concrete goals and 169 sub-goals, which commit all UN’s 193 member states to completely abolish poverty and hunger in the world, reduce inequalities, ensure good education and better health for all, decent jobs and more sustainable economic growth.

Repurposed Drugs is, we believe, a game changer in the field of cancer treatment – both in terms of treatment but also economically.
We work to contribute to the implementation of the UN’s third sub-goal – Health and well-being – through the spread of Repurposed Drugs.
The vision of our work is to establish a public database with all AND more than 235 known drugs that have a positive effect on cancer. Such a database will benefit poorer countries and contribute to universal access to safe and effective life-quality and quality drugs at affordable prices.
