COVID-19 has focused attention on the need to strengthen strategies to support research, development, manufacturing, supply and accessibility of diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). More must be done to ensure sustainable supply through LMIC-centred approaches, including local manufacturing and raw materials procurement – both to address the current pandemic and to build resiliency in prevention and response to future health threats.
You are invited to contribute to the ongoing development of comprehensive and practical measures to catalyse and sustain production of diagnostics in LMICs.
Opening remarks will be made by:
Dr Mariângela Batista Galvão Simão , World Health Organization
Dr Jenny Molloy , University of Cambridge
Dr Bill Rodriguez , FIND
Cecilia Oh , UNDP
