|Title||Willingness to use and pay for a new diagnostic test for malaria in children under 5: Results from Benin, Peru, and Tanzania|
|Publisher||Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation|
This report presents the results of a study on the perceived need for a new malaria diagnostic test for
children under 5 in Benin, Peru, and Tanzania. The study was designed to assess potential demand for
such a test and identify factors that might affect that demand among consumers as well as health care
providers and program managers. Study objectives were to:
• Estimate consumer willingness to use and pay for a potential new malaria test;
• Examine the factors that would influence consumer willingness to use and pay for such a test;
• Determine the extent to which health care providers and program managers see a new test of this
type as priority in their country both in absolute terms and relative to other health priorities.
The study included in-depth interviews with health care providers in the public, private for-profit, and
private non-profit sectors in each country. It also included surveys on consumer willingness to use and
pay for a new malaria diagnostic test and focus groups exploring reasons for the results of these surveys.
