Supporting diagnosis and management of HIV/AIDS patients through point-of-care technology development, Biomedical Engineering

Abstract

The HIV pandemic disproportionately impacts sub-Saharan Africa where, in 2017, 71% of people living with HIV resided and 65% of new infections and 75% of deaths were reported. Prevention, screening, and treatment strategies have led to progress in addressing this disease. HIV diagnostics have been crucial for prevention and treatment, but more progress is required to reduce HIV infection. The Center for Innovation in Point-of-Care Technologies for HIV/AIDS at Northwestern University (C-THAN) is a vital partner in the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering Point-of-Care Technologies Research Network. C-THAN's mission is to develop and commercialize a pipeline of point-of-care technologies critical for improved prevention and management of HIV in low- and middle-income countries with specific emphasis on sub-Saharan Africa.
