Improving diagnostic tests for low-resource settings
The Center for Point-of-Care Diagnostics for Global Health (GHDx Center) works to improve the availability, accessibility, and affordability of essential point-of-care diagnostic tests for use in low-resource settings around the world.
The GHDx Center focuses on four core activities:
- Clinical needs assessments
- Supporting exploratory technology projects
- Clinical testing of prototype point-of-care diagnostics
- Training on the clinical realities of designing point-of-care products for low-resource settings
The GHDx Center is a collaboration of PATH, an international nonprofit organization that improves the health of people around the world, and the University of Washington. It is funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and BioEngineering (NIBIB).
