The global HIV pandemic is estimated to currently infect 35 million people and one in four (25%) of people with HIV in the UK are unaware of their infection.
The enormous scale of the HIV pandemic means there is a desperate need for early detection systems to prevent the spread of this infection. This is driving the development of new mobile phone-connected technologies to test and track HIV in resource-limited settings and feed into global health surveillance systems.
Led by Professor Molly Stevens, Flagship 4 are dedicated to developing new, urgently needed point-of-care tests to prevent and control epidemics.
