HIV Point of Care (Nucleic Acid Tests) Landscape in Africa. Welcome to the point of Care (POC) – early infant diagnosis (EID) landscape in Africa. Through funding provided by Unitaid, CHAI, UNICEF, and ASLM, have successfully supported the introduction of point-of-care (POC) early infant diagnosis and viral load (VL) technologies and pilot activities in sub-Saharan African countries. Strategic deployment of POC infant diagnosis is key in getting more infants tested for HIV and initiated on treatment in a timely manner.
