Key considerations for SARS-CoV-2 antigen RDT implementation

WHO and FIND have collaborated on a new online training course, Key considerations for SARS-CoV-2 antigen RDT implementation. 

This course is based on the ‘SARS-CoV-2 Antigen Detecting Rapid Diagnostic Tests, An implementation guide’, released in December 2020, and is complementary to the policy guidance issued by WHO. It provides an overview of the major elements that must be considered before, during and after the implementation of antigen-detecting rapid diagnostic tests, or antigen-RDTs, for SARS-CoV-2 in order to support the implementation of RDT testing across the diagnostic network. This course is aimed at laboratory stakeholders, notably those involved in planning at central level but also other health stakeholders as well as all relevant professionals tasked with the implementation of RDT testing, including ministries of health, donors, public and private organizations.
