Willingness to use and pay for a new diagnostic test for gonorrhea and chlamydia in high risk asymptomatic populations: Results from Benin, Peru, and Tanzania

File Type .pdf | File Size 1.76 MB

This study assessed the potential market for new diagnostic tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia among potential consumers in three developing countries. These infections pose significant health risks and have high prevalence rates, but the technical requirements and high cost of laboratory tests for diagnosis render lab tests unrealistic in the study countries. Nevertheless, respondents showed little interest in the tests, in part due to unawareness of the asymptomatic nature of these infections and their dire consequences.
