UNITAID's HIV Diagnostic Technology Landscape and its regular biannual updates feature new technologies in the pipeline and as they become available. The Landscape is a vital intelligence tool for scaling up access in the field of HIV/AIDS. It gives global health actors, and in particular buyers of health products, intelligence about new testing devices and thus can help to shape strategies about the best and most appropriate products to include in treatment programmes.
The field of diagnostics for resource-constrained settings has been largely neglected until now but is becoming increasingly important. UNITAID is leading efforts in this area by collecting unprecedented information and making it globally available.
