Description: Sample College ImageIDRI is now part of Microsoft’s Giving Campaign, so Microsoft employees can choose to donate directly to support our work in global infectious disease research and product development. We’re asking Microsoft employees to give in support of IDRI’s leprosy efforts. With the development of IDRI’s diagnostic and vaccine targeted at leprosy, combined with currently available drugs to treat this age-old disease, all the tools are in place to end leprosy, which is endemic in 24 countries. If you work for Microsoft, consider giving today! Or you can always donate directly online athttps://secure.qgiv.com/for/idri/.
