Without diagnostics, medicine is blind. And yet, diagnostics receive much less attention than vaccines and drugs. Despite recent investments in global health diagnostics, the potential for diagnostics to generate value for patients and health systems has not been met across all settings, particularly in low-and middle-income countries where disease burdens are high, and diagnosis remains a big gap in care cascades. In this new community, professionals ranging from clinicians, nurses, policy-makers, researchers, implementers, advocates and health educators share questions, successes, and lessons learned to advance the field of global health diagnostics.
The Global Health Diagnostics community is sponsored by FIND, McGill Global Health Programs, and McGill International TB Centre, with support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
