Evaluation of a point-of-care HIV testing improvement intervention in Kenya

Obtaining and delivering accurate results from HIV rapid test kits is an important component of addressing the first element of the UNAIDS 90-90-90 strategy. There are several reports of a high proportion of inaccurate results achieved from point-of-care (POC) rapid tests, and many factors have been shown associated with rapid test inaccuracies.

The QI intervention was conducted over six months in five facilities in Busia County. This report evaluated the effectiveness and efficiency of an intervention to improve the processes of POC rapid testing in participating facilities in western Kenya.
