How to bring diagnostics to market?
As diagnostics development has stalled for several neglected diseases, the World health organization (WHO) is urgently calling for the creation of low-cost, reliable diagnostic tests.
We will explore and evaluate how our project and the example of Taenia Solium can take up the following mechanisms:
- advanced market commitments,
- global access agreements by funders,
- direct negotiations by countries and donors,
- pooled funds,
- patent pools and buy-outs,
- equitable licensing,
- open source research and
- generic manufacturing.
