EGPAF / Unitaid, 2017.

Through the incorporation of point-of-care (POC) early infant diagnosis (EID) into the national diagnostic network in Kenya, EGPAF aims to increase the number of infants whose HIV status is known and the number of infants living with HIV who are initiated on treatment. This issue brief describes the targets to be reached by 2019. EGPAF worked with the Ministry of Health in order to strategically place POC platforms within the national diagnostic network and supported the enrollment of the first POC EID site in 2017 in Homabay County.
