Essential Dx Tests
First-ever WHO list of essential diagnostic tests to improve diagnosis and treatment
Today, many people are unable to get tested for diseases because they cannot access diagnostic services. Many are incorrectly diagnosed. As a result, they do not receive the treatment they need and, in some cases, may receive the wrong treatment.
To address this gap, WHO has published its first Essential Diagnostics List, a catalogue of 113 tests needed to diagnose the most common conditions as well as a number of priority diseases.
