Wireless HIV Test Results for Infants in Mozambique
New technology is speeding up HIV test results for infants in Mozambique, which allows for HIV treatment to start sooner, PlusNews reports. To test infants for HIV, clinics in the southeastern African nation send dried blood spot samples to the nearest lab. Results can now be uploaded to an online server, which uses a wireless phone network to send results back to the clinics. Previously it took on average three weeks to get the results back to the clinics; now it takes about three days. The Clinton Health Access Initiative developed the technology.
