Pneumonia diagnostic aid devices - current outlook and perspectives

Following consultations with industry, partners and academia, UNICEF provides an outlook and perspectives on the development of new and improved diagnostic aid devices for pneumonia.
New and improved pneumonia diagnostic devices are needed to support accuracy in diagnosing pneumonia, facilitating more effective treatment. New Target Product Profiles (TPPS) will be developed and shared with industry before the end of 2013 to encourage and solicit the development of new devices for field testing.  An effective pneumonia diagnostic aid complements improved treatment using Amoxicillin dispersible tablets in accordance with new WHO treatment guidelines for pneumonia.
