First established in April 2020, the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response Mechanism (C19RM)
Scaling Up & Sustainability
As advocacy and awareness efforts are ongoing, in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) tools and technologies need to be introduced and integrated into health systems to help protect people and communities. Scaling up and sustaining the use of IVD tools require strong, resilient diagnostic lab systems and infrastructure. Strengthening these systems enables countries to provide timely testing, linkage to care, deployment of countermeasures, tracking of disease, and identification of new variants.
