The plan has three main objectives: to provide a road map to guide VL testing scale-up from 3% to 70% by the end of 2017 and 90% by 2018; to establish collaboration and coordination between government and partners as they scale up VL testing; and to support resource mobilization. It describes considerations including laboratory infrastructure, equipment, service, and maintenance; sample type and transportation; procurement and supply chain management; data management and results transmission; PLHIV education and adherence counselling and support; human resources, training, and mentorship; quality assurance; program management; and monitoring and evaluation.
