Accelerating the Development and Uptake of Rapid Diagnostics to Address Antibiotic Resistance

  11 September 2023

The use and misuse of antibiotics contributes to the rise in drug-resistant bacteria – a serious and worsening threat to human health. The development and use of rapid point-of-care diagnostics in the healthcare setting plays an important role in avoiding unnecessary use of antimicrobials by providing clinicians with the right information at the right time to help them make decisions about appropriate drug treatment for patients. Diagnostics also have the capacity to support early detection and diagnosis of drug-resistant bacterial infections, enable disease surveillance, and help prevent disease spread.
