Improving Global Health through Foreign Policy

As the world grapples with ongoing health threats like HIV, tuberculosis, and antimicrobial resistance, access to accurate and rapid diagnostic tests is crucial for effective treatment and care. This is why experts from around the globe are coming together at the 77th World Health Assembly in Geneva to tackle the challenges hindering access to diagnostics in low- and middle-income countries.

One of the main obstacles to effective healthcare delivery is fragmented supply chains and market barriers. To address these challenges, many countries have implemented diagnostic network optimization (DNO) processes, which help identify gaps and inefficiencies in healthcare systems. However, despite these efforts, much of the data collected during DNO processes remains underutilized, hindering progress towards improving global health systems.

To unlock the full potential of DNO processes, experts from Foreign Policy and Cepheid will host an event on May 30th that aims to discuss how insights can be leveraged to enhance pathogen detection, strengthen global health systems, achieve universal health coverage, and combat antimicrobial resistance. The conversation will explore solutions for improving diagnostics and advancing global health initiatives.

Join this important event to learn more about how DNO processes can be optimized to improve healthcare delivery and ultimately promote better health outcomes for all people around the world. The event will take place on May 30th, 2024 from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM CET. Don’t miss it!
