Membership in the New Diagnostics Working Group (NDWG) is free and is open to any institutions and expert individuals involved in the development and implementation of accurate, robust and affordable diagnostics for tuberculosis.
Members represent a wide range of stakeholders from the public and private sectors, including academia, national TB programmes, reference laboratories, industry, NGOs and the patient community from all over the world.
The NDWG consists today of more than 450 members committed to the global fight against TB in the perspective of improved diagnosis. They contribute with information, participation in discussions on specific issues and input aiming at generating evidence.
Once a year, NDWG members convene at the NDWG Annual Meeting which is held in conjunction with the Union World Conference to review activities and progress, and to share updates on scientific and technological advances in different areas of development of new TB diagnostics.
If you would like to join the NDWG, you are welcome to complete the application form.
The Secretariat of the New Diagnostics Working Group is housed by FIND.
