FIND Call For Proposals: Accelerating the development of next generation malaria rapid diagnostic tools
The Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) is a global non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the development, evaluation, and delivery of high-quality, affordable diagnostic tests for poverty-related diseases.
The objective of this call is to identify malaria innovations that have the potential to address the technical and operational limitations of current malaria RDTs, particularly in view of:
- the emergence of P. falciparum parasites with hrp2/3 deletions
- the need for improved tools to identify all Plasmodium species
- the need for improved surveillance
The aim is to identify advanced technologies (proof-of-concept and prototype available) that can benefit from early access to field sites for short term, targeted feasibility testing (from as early as Q1 2020 up to Q3 2020) with the aim of high-quality feasibility and operational data as part of FINDs ongoing trial platform.
Expression of interest (EOI) and submission template (and other supporting documents) are to be submitted via the Webform.
Application deadline November 22, 2019, by 17:00 CEST.
