Diseases such as malaria, sleeping sickness, meningitis and typhoid fever are leading causes of morbidities and deaths in most emerging economies around the world. Malaria is endemic in over 108 countries in Africa, Asia, South America, Mediterranean, and the Western Pacific. The most pronounced challenges in controlling these diseases is the limited availability of, and access to, accurate, rapid, point-of-care diagnostic tools and sustained effective treatment. To sustain the utility of any newer drugs and vaccines, diagnostic tools for monitoring the development of drug resistance in malaria is an important complement to an integrated approach. Our specific goal is to expand the availability and affordability of rapid diagnostics and pharmaceuticals against infectious diseases, with an initial focus on malaria.
