LOCAL PRODUCTION OF DIAGNOSTICS IN LMICs
Hosted by WHO, UNDP and FIND
THURSDAY 8 JULY 2021, 14:00–16:30 CEST
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. Join us to hear feedback on progress and provide your input into next steps.
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
