Caritas Malta told this newsroom that the avoidance of infected needle sharing helps reduce the transmission of HIV. "The original scope of this initiative is for government to hand out free syringes, which aside from reducing the risk of sharing, and whilst asking for syringes can receive help to remove the habit"
In a reply to Microsoft's action, a Samsung spokeswoman said, "We will review the complaint in detail and determine appropriate measures in response."
Robert said: "UNITAID is supporting integrated platforms what we call polyvalent platforms for diagnosis. One UNITAID grantee is looking at a possibility of having a platform at a central laboratory which is open, which can take its components and reagents from different suppliers, so that we are not tied to any one supplier, and it makes the platform that much more flexible and adaptable for countries. Particularly for countries where one type of reagent has been designed for a HIV genotype, so this enables you to combine it to include multiple genotypes. That is the open nature of the platform. Polyvalent nature is to see if we can then add TB, hepatitis C, or other assays to the platform which are possible. They are looking at the feasibility of doing that in a number of countries in Western Africa and then generalising their findings beyond that. So here we are looking through technology to promote integration of services and testing for HIV, TB and even hepatitis CC This is a possibility where technology and tools might help programmes to come together. This is in response to the needs expressed by healthcare providers on the frontlines such as nurses or community volunteers etc who wanted this kind of a platform so that with increasing task-shifting they may not have to deal with multiple point of care machines for HIV, TB, and hepatitis C, and rather have ‘multiplex’ platforms. Besides such platforms at central laboratory level, UNITAID is also exploring possibility of a point of care polyvalent platform to test for HIV, TB, and hepatitis C virus. It makes economic sense to do that, will be better for programmes and for horizontalizing the work."
"At the very least, we should think about analysing data for males and females separately in clinical trials" Rubin stressed
