Covid-19 Diagnostic Resources for Low- and Middle-Income Countries

Access to affordable, accurate Covid-19 tests is central to every country’s ability to control the pandemic, yet few resources have been created to assist low- and middle-income countries navigate the complex scientific, regulatory and business environments surrounding test procurement.

To fill this gap, The Rockefeller Foundation is working with MSH to provide data and guidance on available and emerging Covid-19 diagnostics to decision-makers who are supporting national Covid-19 responses in low- and middle-income countries.

Available resources:

  • Landscape Analysis

    Landscape analysis of laboratory technologies for Covid-19 response in LMICs to help demystify technical characteristics that differentiate between test types and products
  • Supply Chain Guidance
