With the roll-out of RTRI testing, data on recent infections will be used to:

  • Identify areas of high transmission for prevention programming
  • Strengthen laboratory programs and other interventions in high burden locales to reduce HIV incidence
  • Generate epidemiologic data to track the epidemic

The scale-up of TRACE will help key stakeholders detect geographic areas and subpopulations with ongoing active HIV transmission, analyze the data in real-time to better  target HIV prevention programs, and ultimately interrupt further transmission to help end the epidemic.
