The diagnostics pillar is co-convened by the Global Fund and FIND and has an overall objective to significantly increase access to COVID-19 tests and sequencing, which will ensure effective test, trace, isolate, and treat strategies, as well as early identification and containment of new variants
There are 6 workstreams within the diagnostics pillar; Market Readiness, Supply, Country Support, R&D, Modelling and Genomic surveillance. Each have reserved space for civil society and communities. The diagnostics pillar currently has 13 civil society and community representatives.
The participation and representation of civil society and communities on this pillar is coordinated by the joint pillar focal points, Chase Perfect and Dr Carolyn Gomes, based in Paris, France and Kingston, Jamaica respectively.
