HIV and Viral Hepatitis Diagnostic Tests in LMICs: Forecasts of Global and Regional Demand for 2022-2026

The World Health Organization (WHO) released a report providing forecasts of future demand for diagnostic tests in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) used in the fields of HIV and viral hepatitis.

These forecasts have multiple potential uses. First, they may inform advocacy efforts to increase access to diagnostics. Second, they may guide health systems and procurement organizations in planning how to obtain adequate supplies of diagnostics to fulfill service delivery needs. Third, they may aid manufacturers in identifying opportunities to contribute to meeting anticipated market demands.

The report jointly presents diagnostic test forecasts across disease areas in recognition of the benefits of addressing HIV and viral hepatitis B and C in a coordinated manner.
