FIND is the Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics.
We are a global non-profit organization driving innovation in the development and delivery of diagnostics to combat major diseases affecting the world’s poorest populations.
Diagnostics often do not exist, are inaccessible, or cost too much. They remain under-resourced and overlooked, despite being pivotal for guiding the best treatment for individual patients; for preventing the spread of disease and antimicrobial resistance; and for enhancing surveillance for early disease detection and monitoring.
We are the only WHO Collaborating Centre in diagnostics, aligning our priorities with those of the global public health community. We turn complex diagnostic challenges into simple solutions through unique partnerships with the public, private and non-profit sectors.
Our work bridges R&D to access: we have deep technical and practical experience in the definition of needs, development of fit-for-purpose products, generation of evidence for regulators and policy-makers, analysis of market dynamics, the introduction of new products, and strengthening of laboratory systems.
