Welcome to the website of the international diagnostics centre (IDC)

There are significant efforts underway to accelerate the development, evaluation, and implementation of diagnostics for global health, but the market for those products is inefficient. Information is at best asynchronous; there is no single, easily-accessed repository of information, including best practices, for market participants. The IDC brings together the wide-ranging academic and research resources of LSHTM and other stakeholders, on the one hand, and diagnostic companies, developers and international partners, on the other hand, to provide advocacy and a comprehensive website to assist those trying to design, develop and implement IVDs for global health.
