Description

An anonymised dataset produced as part of a study on initial accuracy of commonly used HIV rapid diagnostic tests (RDT) when stored in suboptimal conditions and the validity of delayed reading of OraQuick oral fluid tests. It contains HIV results for each RDT, age, sex, previous testing data and an indication of whether or not there was a change in the reading of OraQuick oral RDT over the 12 month period of re-reading. It may be used to validate results related to analysis of sensitivity and specificity of each sub-optimally-stored test kit compared with optimally stored Determine and Uni-Gold conducted in parallel.
