Engage with experts from nongovernmental organizations, industry, and government as they examine how to meet the needs for diagnostics in global health in the absence of resources to develop these technologies.
Low- and middle-income countries have made significant progress in reducing the burden of infectious diseases. But sustaining these gains will require more low-cost diagnostics to support population-level health programs. These range from basic laboratory tests to diagnose infections to sophisticated molecular diagnostics for assessing the presence of multiple pathogens within populations. How do we address this challenge when the people who need these technologies can least afford them? A panel of the world’s leading diagnostic experts will examine this issue from multiple perspectives and offer solutions for accelerating innovation in this space.
