NTD Diagnostics for Disease Elimination: A Review

Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTDs) marked out for disease elimination provide a lens
through which to explore the changing status of diagnosis in global health. This paper reports on
the findings of a scoping review, which set out to explore the main debates around diagnosis for the
elimination of NTDs, including the multiple roles diagnostic technologies are being ascribed and
the ideal characteristics of tests. It also attempts to summarise the state of diagnosis for three NTDs
with elimination goals.
