Some currently adopted diagnostic methods for NTDs lack the sensitivity or specificity to reliably diagnose and treat all infections. This two-part workshop explores these issues, citing recent studies on the diagnosis of African sleeping sickness, endemic treponema infections, and urinary schistosomiasis.
In addition, this time, important lessons learned from the development of Covid-19 diagnostics over the past 18 months will be shared, and lectures will be given on how learning from Covid-19 will be useful in the field of NTD diagnostics. It has been done.
