SEAD enables accurate testing by training personnel to do point-of-care testing effectively and by improving the clinic-laboratory-interface. Our services ensure that patients are able to receive appropriate health tests at public healthcare sites, and that the results of these tests are produced timeously and can be actioned accordingly.
We ensure that the working relationship between the clinic and the laboratory is continuous and high quality.
Point of care tests are simplified laboratory tests in the hands of non-laboratory people and are the first test for assessing a patient’s HIV status. We train medical personnel at primary healthcare facilities on how to effectively use testing kits to get accurate results.
