- Title: Field performance of PIMA Point of Care Machine for CD4 Enumeration Under a Mobile HIV Counseling and Testing Program in Remote Fishing Communities of Lake Victoria Uganda
- Abstract: Uganda is among the most HIV/AIDS afflicted countries, and many HIV infected persons live in remote areas with poor access to healthcare. The success of HIV care programs relies in part on patient monitoring using CD4 T cell counts. We conducted an evaluation of the point-of-care PIMA test using BD FACSCount as a gold standard.
