Founded in 2003, FIND is an international non-profit organization that enables the development and delivery of diagnostic tests for poverty-related diseases,
including tuberculosis, malaria, HIV/AIDS, sleeping sickness, hepatitis C, leishmaniasis, Chagas disease and Buruli ulcer. FIND also works on global
diagnostics preparedness for diseases with outbreak potential and is involved in emerging work on diagnostic tools to fight antimicrobial resistance.
Over the past decade, FIND has partnered in the delivery of 11 new diagnostic tools, including six WHO-endorsed diagnostic tools for TB, and created
an enabling environment for countless more through specimen banks, reagent development, and better market visibility. FIND also supports the scale-up
of diagnostics through implementation, quality assurance and lab strengthening work. FIND has nearly 200 formal partners, including research institutes
and laboratories, health ministries, commercial partners, bilateral and multilateral organizations, especially WHO, clinical trial sites, and nongovernmental
implementing and advocacy organizations.
