Ontario launches POC (point of care) HIV testing programme
This article was originally published in Clinica
Ontario is launching free point of care (POC) testing for HIV - a move that it claims is a Canadian first. The programme features a 60-second on-site antibody test, said to be "as accurate as current laboratory-based testing in Ontario", though the presence of antibodies will require lab-based confirmation of HIV-positive status. It will also entail a doubling of the number of testing sites.
