Abstract

Cryptococcal meningitis causes an estimated 15% of all AIDS-related deaths globally.[1] The disease largely affects people with advanced HIV disease, mostly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). The high death rate in part relates to limited access to diagnostic tests for the disease and the high cost and limited availability of treatments.
