Point-of-care viral load testing and differentiated HIV care

By Jienchi Dorward | 07 Jan, 2018

Dear colleagues,

Madhu asked me to share the attached short comment on POC HIV VL testing which was recently published in the Lancet HIV. These ideas come out of an ongoing randomised trial of POC VL testing to facilitate differentiated HIV care through task shifting and decentralised ART delivery, using the quantitative Xpert HIV-1 VL assay (protocol paper also attached). I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about how POC VL testing could be best used, in which situations it would be most useful, and indeed, any ways in which yourselves and colleagues are using the assay currently.

Kind regards
