WHO resource on diagnostics

Diagnostics are the most important tools that empower the health workforce in the identification of diseases or health conditions. They allow the initiation of treatments in order to avoid further complications and costly treatments for patients.

WHO resource on strengthening diagnostics capacity

Whilst approximately 70% of healthcare decisions are made based on diagnostic test results, only 3–5% of healthcare budgets go to diagnostic services. In many countries clinicians don’t have access to basic diagnostic tools or laboratory tests needed to support patients. When they are available, vast distances and isolated communities often make testing people extremely difficult.
