During the latter half of 2010, Anguilla determined that it in an effort to assist in the country management of the population of HIV positive persons and in anticipation of an increase over time, that it would be prudent to procure a CD4 machine.
The EC funded Overseas Countries and Territories project funds designed to halt and reverse the spread of HIV/AIDS in the British and Dutch Caribbean Overseas Caribbean Territories (OCTs) made the purchase of the machine which was delivered in December 2010 possible.
During the period February 17th to 18th February 2011, two engineers Mr. Libasse Mboup, Service Engineer from Point Care Technologies and Owen Wilson, Field Service Engineer from Scientific Supplies and Technology installed the machine and provided training for the Laboratory Staff at the Princess Alexander Hospital.
