Diagnostic infectious diseases testing outside clinics: A global systematic review and meta-analysis

Testing outside of clinics provides an opportunity to expand access to diagnostic testing for
infectious diseases and give power to testers through innovative delivery models. Testing outside of clinics can reach the last mile of many health systems, driving access for hard-to-reach groups in diverse LMIC settings. The modest evidence on adverse events suggests that these occur at a similar rate in facility-based testing. Further implementation research and scale-up of effective
decentralized models in LMIC settings is needed.
