InTec PRODUCTS, INC. Taking Part in BHIVA and ITN News HEALTH AND HIV Campaign for World AIDS Day 1st December 2020

"Health and HIV” went live at 6pm on World AIDS Day, 1 December 2020, via BHIVA’s Twitter feed, Facebook channel and website https://www.bhiva.org/World-AIDS-Day-2020.

 

1 December 2020, World AIDS Day 2020:  The British HIV Association (BHIVA) and ITN Productions Industry News launched a bespoke co-production for World Aids Day 2020 and beyond. As a manufacturer of HIV rapid tests, InTec PRODUCTS, INC. takes part in the “HEALTH AND HIV” campaign, aiming at bringing more attention to the populations living with HIV and raising awareness of HIV rapid testing and prevention from the public.

 

Undertaking a HIV test can be a long process, from taking a blood sample to receiving the results. InTec PRODUCTS, INC. have partnered with Matrix Diagnostics to offer a fast, accurate, and affordable point of care testing product, to help to prevent the spread of HIV within high-risk groups.

InTec HIV tests have been used in both developed and developing / LMICs for many years with excellent track record for optimum performance and quality and service.

HIV POC testing is an integral part of diagnosis and in general HIV care continuum. We at InTec are working with clinicians and health systems to establish TEST & TREAT programmes for Linkage to Care of HIV patients. Use of HIV RDTs have been proved to be a very effective method for case finding especially among risk groups such as MSMs and substance misusers.

Early and timely detection of HIV infection helps to break the infectious chain and it helps to put those in risk on effective treatment. Peer reviews confirm that putting individuals on treatment can reduce the risk of HIV transmission as low as 1% only.

In the video for “Health and HIV”, Dr Kaveh Manavi, Deputy Chief Medical Officer Queen Elizabeth Hospital NHS Sexual Health Clinic, discusses the importance of getting HIV test results through point of care testing.  James Lawson, Managing Director of Matrix, explains how testing is undertaken, the quality of the product and how this method of testing can also be used for other diseases.
