Description

FIND is a global non-profit product development partnership that aims to develop, evaluate and deliver high-quality affordable diagnostic tests for poverty-related diseases. UK Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) funding through the Global AMR Innovation Fund (GAMRIF) will support FIND’s work to enhance the impact of diagnostic tools for antimicrobial resistance (AMR), to support improved AMR surveillance and antibiotic stewardship.

Objectives

This work has two areas of focus: 1) to develop technological methods to connect data from patient testing and health provider consultations to larger data systems, such as national and international AMR surveillance programmes. This will lead to improved antibiotic use and AMR surveillance through increased access of data; and 2) to develop a new diagnostic technologies for drug-resistant gonorrhea, which will enable improved diagnosis and therefore use of new antibiotics.

Target Groups

Projects funded through GAMRIF will primarily benefit people in low- and middle-income countries, where the burden of drug-resistant infection is greater.
