“Partnerships like the one we are announcing today with IQVIA are key to building more resilient and responsive laboratories and global health systems,” said Jennifer Lotito, President and COO of (RED). “We can’t end the AIDS pandemic and prevent future pandemics without the life science industry. (RED) is delighted to add IQVIA to our dedicated family of life-science partners who are helping make preventable and treatable disease preventable and treatable for everyone.”
“If there’s one thing that we have learned even more clearly from COVID-19, it is that rapid diagnosis is the first line of defense against any infectious disease outbreak,” said Peter Sands, the Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. “At a time when global health leaders are working toward a pandemic treaty, this new Integration Fund demonstrates the will to fight today’s infectious diseases and prepare for tomorrow’s pandemics.”
The Global Fund’s Laboratory Systems Integration Fund aims to advance laboratory systems readiness and capability ratings in over a dozen low- and middle-income countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America to detect and respond to potential local health threats before they become global pandemics. Along with IQVIA, the Fund is backed by $54 million in investments from The Rockefeller Foundation, The Abbott Fund, the philanthropic foundation of the global healthcare company Abbott, and the Global Fund, along with 10 other recipient countries.
