Assalamu 'alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh

Y.Bhg. Dato’ Sri /Prof/Dr./Sir/Madam, 

              The ASEAN Diagnostics Development (DxD) Initiative was jointly launched by Philippines’ ASEAN Network for Drugs, Diagnostics, Vaccines and Traditional Medicines Innovation (ASEAN-NDI) and Singapore’s Diagnostics Development Hub (DxD Hub) to co-develop diagnostic products among ASEAN Member States (AMS) that address unmet clinical needs in ASEAN. The ASEAN DxD Initiative was endorsed during COST-74 in Chiang Mai, Thailand on 8-11 May 2018.

The Philippines (PH) and Singapore (SG) are the founding co-chairs of the initiative. As part of the implementation of ASEAN DxD Initiative, a Strategic Planning Panel (SPP) was established to bring together experts and strategic stakeholders from each AMS to facilitate the development and delivery of diagnostics by ASEAN for ASEAN. The 1st ASEAN DxD Initiative SPP meeting (SPP-1) was held in Singapore on 24-25 September 2018.

The SPP-1 meeting concurred to focus for the first call for project proposals aligning with diagnostics for Dengue, Tuberculosis (TB), Hepatitis B and Malaria. Accepting of application will be on 20th March 2019 until 31st May 2019. 

Applications pertaining to areas outside of the 4 key diseases may be considered on a case-by-case basis.
