Recency Testing

Challenges to the performance of current HIV diagnostic assays and the need for centralized specimen archives: a review of the Consortium for the Evaluation and Performance of HIV Incidence Assays (CEPHIA) repository
The authors argue that specimen repositories can play an invaluable role in the development, optimization, and validation of HIV diagnostic assays, such as recency assays.Link to Journal Article

The feasibility and utility of HIV recent infection testing in a range of routine service-provision contexts
MeSH ran three pilot studies in Kenya and Zimbabwe to assess feasibility and utility of HIV recent infection testing in a range of routine service-provision contexts. We present the results from these pilots in this joint report.
Estimating HIV Incidence Using HIV Case Surveillance
MesH contributed to discussions of the WHO Working Group on HIV Incidence Assays in Glion, Switzerland in 2015 which resulted in this meeting report.
