Routine point-of-care viral load testing a success in Malawi

Point-of-care viral load testing reached 85% of people living with HIV and in care across five sites over four years in Malawi. The findings describe, for the first time, real-world programmatic outcomes of routine POC VL testing in sub-Saharan Africa.
The first available POC VL test is the SAMBA I (“Simple Amplification Based Assay”) platform, which is a semi-automated and conducive for use in low-resourced settings.
