From: High mortality in HIV-infected children diagnosed in hospital underscores need for faster diagnostic turnaround time in prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV (PMTCT) programs

Figure 1

Testing yield, infant ages, and turnaround time for infant HIV testing at hospital and PMTCT. Infants were tested for HIV in PMTCT clinics and pediatric hospital wards as part of the parent clinical trial recruitment procedures. This figure shows the testing steps, test turnaround time, and infant age at testing among the two recruitment clinic types. Among HIV-exposed infants, HIV infection was more prevalent in hospital wards than in PMTCT clinics, infant age at testing was higher in hospital wards than in PMTCT clinics, and test turnaround time was shorter in hospital wards than in PMTCT clinics.
