Global Diagnostics Challenge: How to Tackle Fragmented Supply Chains and Barriers to Access in Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Maximizing Global Health – Foreign Policy

The 77th World Health Assembly will gather in Geneva one year after a landmark resolution on strengthening diagnostics. Experts from around the world will discuss pressing health challenges, including fragmented supply chains and market barriers that hinder access to diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries.

Enduring threats like HIV, tuberculosis, emerging infectious diseases, and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) require accurate and rapid diagnostic tests for effective treatment and care. Diagnostic network optimization (DNO) assesses gaps and inefficiencies in healthcare networks but often fails to utilize data collected during these processes, hindering progress.

Join Foreign Policy and Cepheid on May 30th to advance the conversation on diagnostics. Learn how unlocking DNO insights can enhance pathogen detection, strengthen global health systems, achieve universal health coverage, and combat AMR.
