Optimising Coronavirus Testing
Successful diagnostic testing systems have helped to achieve relatively low rates of COVID-19 mortality in a number of countries. This project aims to identify how to establish these systems, their functioning, and the role of international organisations in supporting diagnostic innovation. The project’s objective is to enable policy and practices that could reduce mortality rates, improve the targeting of healthcare resources, and reduce the duration of lockdown measures - which have had severe economic consequences - for the current pandemic and future epidemics.
