Press Release: Public Private Partnership Announces Immediate 40% Cost Reduction in Rapid TB Test
The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, the U.S. Agency for International Development, UNITAID, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced an agreement that will significantly reduce the cost of a new, highly accurate rapid diagnostic test for TB in 145 high-burden and developing countries. Research suggests that the incremental scale-up of GeneXpert MTB/RIF ® in countries with high TB burdens could allow for the rapid diagnosis of 700,000 cases of TB disease and save health systems in low- and middle-income countries more than U.S. $18 million in direct health costs.
