This summary presents an overview of the results of the first and second rounds of WHO product testing of malaria antigen-detecting RDTs completed in 2008 and 2009 respectively, and is published in conjunction with the release of the results of Round 2. The results of the two rounds of testing should be considered as a single data set, and the full reports of both Rounds 1 and 2 consulted for further detail on product performance, and on the interpretation and use of these results.

The RDT evaluations summarized here were performed as a collaboration between WHO, TDR, FIND, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other partners.

The evaluation is designed to provide comparative data on the performance of the submitted production lots of each product.
