An extension of Key Considerations for Introducing New HIV Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostic Technologies in National Health Systems, this Toolkit contains practical tools and guidance to support countries as they introduce POC HIV technologies into existing national diagnostic networks and laboratory systems. It provides a roadmap as countries seek to expand access to quality-assured HIV diagnostics. The toolkit is organized in four modules: (1) Product and Site Selection; (2) Forecasting and Supply Planning; (3) Regulations; and (4) Quality Assurance. Though most links are to documents in English, portions of the site are available in Amharic, French, Portuguese, and Swahili.
