Zachary D et al. – An alternative HIV testing algorithm could include OraQuick test which had a high sensitivity and specificity. The current Determine/Uni–GoldTM testing algorithm is the least expensive when compared to Determine /OraQuick, OraQuick/Determine, and OraQuick/Uni–GoldTM in the Zambian setting. From the field experience, oral fluid based testing offers many advantages over blood–based testing, especially with self testing on the horizon.
