The aim of the NIDIAG project is improve the quality of NID care at primary health care level in resource-poor settings.

The major objectives of the NIDIAG consortium are:

  • To develop and validate an integrated syndromic approach based on diagnosis treatment algorithms for three NID-related clinical syndromes frequently encountered in primary care settings, namely the persistent fever syndrome (at least 2 week duration), the neurological syndrome, and the intestinal syndrome.
  • To develop novel diagnostic platforms/assays tailored to specific epidemiological contexts at primary care level in NID-endemic settings
  • To document the cost-saving and increased efficacy of this integrated syndromic approach for the clinical management of NID, and produce recommendations to policy makers for its broad implementation
