The use-cases and target product profiles (TPPs) for STH diagnostics defined.

In the summer of 2017, a group of experts and key stakeholders in the development of diagnostic tools for soil-transmitted helminths met in Annecy, France, for a 3-day meeting. The goal of the meeting was to come to a consensus regarding the different use-cases for STH diagnostics and their companion target product profiles (TPPs). These TPPs are intended to provide the whole community with a pathway for the research, development, evaluation and implementation of diagnostic tools designed for STH control programs. These results were combined in this Symposium manuscript by Mark Lim (B&MGF) and can be used to prioritize research or product development resources based on immediate and anticipated program needs.
