Key Considerations for Introducing New HIV Point-of-Care Diagnostic Technologies

This document describes the key areas that national governments should consider for the introduction and scale-up of point-of-care (POC) diagnostics within national programmes, as new innovative POC technologies are being introduced into the market.
The next steps taken to include these new innovations within the broader context of national diagnostic networks of conventional laboratories could influence the achievement of the 2030 Fast Track targets for ending the AIDS epidemic. In this Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) era, the global HIV/AIDS community is guided by the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/ AIDS (UNAIDS) Fast Track Strategy (2016–2021) and the global targets of 90-90-90.
