The GHDx Center catalyzes exploration and advancement of promising point-of-care diagnostic technologies appropriate for use in low-resource settings by providing targeted technical and financial support to technology developers.
Opportunities for support are focused on two areas:
- Exploratory technology projects to advance pre-prototype product development; and
- Laboratory and field-based clinical testing of prototype point-of-care diagnostics.
Through competitive solicitation processes, the GHDx Center identifies, selects, and supports innovative and promising technologies that could have a significant positive impact on public health outcomes. Candidate technologies are assessed for anticipated health impact, relevance to the needs and realities of low-resource settings, and market-related issues that could affect the eventual products’ commercialization prospects.
