Global Diagnostic Alliance

Our vision is that the best diagnostic information is available so people around the world can benefit from all aspects of health care.

The Global Diagnostics Alliance is an international group of the leading industry associations representing manufacturers of in vitro diagnostics (IVDs) and related analytical instruments and software. The GDA is a division of the Global Medical Technology Alliance (GMTA), which is an unincorporated entity with the members bound by agreement to a governance framework. GDA decision-making operates on a consensus basis.


The GDA’s mission is to provide a forum for our associations to discuss and collaborate on key issues facing the diagnostics industry, especially the promotion of the role and value of diagnostics as a critical gateway to health care. The GDA also serves as an industry contact point for global stakeholders. The GDA operates on a consensus basis.

The Participating Associations include: AdvaMedDx; Câmara Brasileira de Diagnóstico Laboratorial (CBDL); Pathology Technology Australia; Japan Association of Clinical Reagents Industries (JACRI); Japan Analytical Instruments Manufacturers' Association (JAIMA); Mecomed; MEDEC; and MedTech Europe.
