    HIV Point-of-Care (Nucleic Acid Testing) Landscape in Africa

    Strategic deployment of POC EID is key to getting more infants tested for HIV and initiated on treatment in a timely manner. This map indicates the distribution by type and numbers of POC Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) for HIV, EID and VL technologies ( Alere, Samba, GeneXpert, etc. ) being used by some countries in Africa.

    SLIPTA Audited Laboratories Interactive Distribution Map

    WHO-AFRO has established the Stepwise Laboratory Quality Improvement Process Towards Accreditation (SLIPTA) programme, a framework for improving the quality of public health laboratories in developing countries to achieve ISO 15189 standards. Through standardised processes, SLIPTA measures and evaluates the progress of laboratory systems towards international accreditation and awards a certificate of recognition (0-5 stars rating). This map shows the distribution and ratings of laboratories that have been audited.

    2019 Waste Management Training Session 3: Tool for Waste Management Considerations for VL and EID Testing Laboratories and Associated Healthcare Facilities

    In collaboration with ASLM and the LabCoP community, the CDC International Laboratory Branch (ILB) presented the 3rd of 6 ECHO sessions dedicated to waste management. In this session, a draft of a viral load waste management checklist tool that can be used as baseline audit of select country VL labs was introduced. The tool aims to assist in creating awareness of best practices and identifying gaps for waste management processes in HIV molecular testing laboratories and associated healthcare facilities.
