HIV Point-of-Care Diagnostics Toolkit


This Toolkit contains various practical tools and guidance to support countries as they introduce point-of-care (POC) HIV technologies into existing national diagnostic networks and laboratory systems. Organized using a modular framework, this Toolkit covers the following building blocks for HIV point-of-care testing:

  • Site and Product Selection

  • Site Enrollment and Training

  • Site Monitoring and Post-Market Surveillance

  • Quantification and Supply Planning

  • Quality Assurance

Importantly, both the Toolkit and the Key Considerations guidance were developed in the context of pioneering, catalytic investments made by Unitaid in new point-of- care HIV diagnostic technologies across 15 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa.
