WHO/HIVResNet HIV drug resistance laboratory operational framework (Sólo en inglés)


The World Health Organization (WHO) HIV Drug Resistance Network (HIVResNet) Laboratory Operational Framework describes how WHO HIVResNet laboratories function to support national, regional, and global HIV drug resistance (HIVDR) surveillance by providing accurate genotyping results in a standardized format according to WHO specifications. The aim of the WHO HIVDR Laboratory Operational Framework is to ensure:

  • Accurate collection, handling, shipment and storage of specimens collected in countries implementing HIVDR surveillance
  • Availability of quality-assured HIV genotyping laboratory services producing comparable and reliable results at the national, regional and global level.
