Abstract

Evaluation of Rapid Tests and Identification of Algorithms for the Screening and the Serotyping of HIV Infection in West Africa

To evaluate HIV rapid tests and algorithms on both serum/plasma (SP) and whole blood (WB) as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) before their implementation in any country. The goal of this is to avoid false positive/negative results, or the misclassification of HIV serotypes, particularly in countries where both HIV-1 and HIV-2 co-circulate.

Keywords: HIV1; HIV2; Screening; Serotyping; Rapid tests; Evaluation; Whole blood; Serum; Plasma
