File Type: PDF | File Size: 11.35 MB

This study responds to the pressing need for better diagnostic tests for several infectious diseases, such as HIV and TB, as the tests used in developing countries have many limitations and are largely inadequate to address health needs. Researchers interviewed Indian health providers to determine whether they saw a need for such tests and used surveys and focus groups to explore consumer (including caregiver) willingness to pay and preferences surrounding such test. Study results vary by disease, with greatest willingness to pay for the TB test.
