This call for papers aims to highlight the importance of all forms of diagnostics in the context of global health, including the innovation and deployment of point of care diagnostics; subsets of diagnostics related to infectious diseases, chronic diseases and injuries; policies related to and regulation of diagnostics; supply chain issues; and the affordability, accessibility, and availability of essential diagnostics.
