The Center for Human Services (CHS) researched potential demand for diagnostics of high morbidity and mortality diseases—HIV, malaria, tuberculosis, syphilis, gonorrhea and chlamydia, and acute lower respiratory illness—in developing countries. The research examined issues surrounding the use of diagnostic tests: consumer willingness to use and pay for them, health care providers and program managers’ perceptions of their effectiveness, and factors that might affect future introduction of the diagnostic tests.
