Namitambo Health Centre in Chiradzulu District, one of the few sites where the first-ever available point-of-care viral load device is being used. Called SAMBA, this platform is simpler to use than other molecular technologies for viral load, requires less staff training and can be rolled out in low healthcare levels like the Namitambo Health Centre. It is the first point-of-care viral load device to be rolled out world-wide and its roll-out is part of the UNITAID grant.
Chiradzulu district has one of the highest HIV prevalence rates in the country.
