Transforming access to diagnostics: global launch of the Lancet Commission

Transforming access to diagnostics: global launch of the Lancet Commission

Lancet Commission report on diagnostics

A large proportion of the global population does not have adequate access to quality, affordable diagnostics (laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging). Transforming access is required to support the achievement of universal health coverage. At this global launch, co-hosted by The Lancet and FIND, authors presented key findings and recommendations from the report, followed by a high-level panel discussion and Q&A from the audience.
