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.
