Barriers to Early Infant Diagnosis (EID) at Different Stages in Infancy

International Workshop on HIV Pediatrics 2021

Early infant diagnosis (EID) has proven to be an impactful intervention, but the coverage in sub–Saharan Africa remains unacceptably low. To drive uptake while reducing the burden of multiple clinic visits, the WHO recommends testing of HIV-exposed infants to align with routine immunization and child development clinic visits. Facilitating access to timely and reliable diagnostics to bridge the treatment coverage gap for children, in low-resource settings.
