Bangalore: August 06, 2010
Following the shortage of rapid HIV testing kits, the National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) has asked all the State AIDS Control Societies to use the available kits judiciously. The organisation has asked the project directors of the societies to even curtail testing of “pre-operative cases” as the available stocks will last only till September. Pre-operative cases are those who are about to be operated on for a variety of reasons.The State requires nearly 4,000 kits a month to run its 565 testing centres. Subsequently, Karnataka State AIDS Prevention Society (KSAPS) officials said they had procured some kits and more would arrive soon.
