I have received a call for proposal where donors want to invest in project aiming to validate the clinical performance and/or implementation of new or improved diagnostic tools and technologies for detection of any of the poverty-related diseases, including as co-infections. “Projects funded under this call (with a budget of €15M for 4-8 grants) should lead to rapid and simple diagnostics that can be deployed at low cost in health systems in resource-poor settings.”
AVSI has been working for more than 12 years in DRC supporting a few health districts in stable areas. AVSI could provide great support to a company, university, lab or other entity to implement this project. In DRC, AVSI works in areas where HIV, malnutrition, malaria, pneumonia, diarrhea and cholera are present. Many hospital lack the means to carry out tests, the output of this project will be of great impact.
If any of you might or of your contacts is willing to work on this project please contact me ASAP.
