Launching the Global Frugal Dx network!

HI All

Please see below for a new network featuring leadership from members of the Reclone community like @Harry_Akligoh & Elena Rosca. Do join their launch event if you can!


We are launching the Global Frugal Dx network!

As you are aware, the diagnostic industry has been experiencing a significant shift in recent years.
There is a growing need for accessible, affordable, and accurate diagnostic solutions, especially in low-resource settings. The establishment of a Frugal Diagnostic Network will be a critical step toward meeting these needs.

We are excited to invite you to our online meet and greet event, which will be held on Wednesday 24th May 2023 5-6 pm BST. The purpose of this meeting is to bring together stakeholders from the diagnostic ecosystem, including test developers, policymakers, academic researchers, and entrepreneurs to seed conversations and identify priorities for the establishment of a Frugal Diagnostic Network.

During the event, you will have the opportunity to network and share ideas on how we can establish a sustainable, reliable, and inclusive network that caters to the needs of all stakeholders. Our discussions will be focused on identifying priorities and strategies that will guide the development and implementation of this network.

I am interested and want to register

Please feel free to share details of the network and events with other interested colleagues.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to your participation and contribution to this exciting initiative.
