Novel Frontline Mobile Diagnostics Device for Antenatal Care

We propose to scale up development and deploy in Rwandan community-level clinics a novel, low-cost, front-line diagnostic testing device that enables simultaneous detection of HIV and syphilis. This device requires just one finger-pricked volume of blood, and performs diagnostic testing that is as accurate as laboratory testing. Integrated into this diagnostic instrument is an GPRS mobile health capability which performs real-time synchronization of data to a central health records database using the cell-phone network or orbiting satellites.
