Low literacy rate coupled with unawareness regarding transmission mode oh HIV, changing lifestyle, and unsafe sex are some of the reasons leading to increasing number of HIV cases. To lower the disease incidence and increase the life expectancy, government of various countries along with NGOs are focusing on improving HIV diagnostics and making them easily accessible to the general population. In 2017, Government of India in association with National AIDS Control Organisation (NACO) revealed a seven-year National Strategic Plan on HIV/AIDS and STI, 2017-24. The focus of this national programme will be achieving the fast-track targets such as 75% reduction in new HIV infections.
Moreover, increasing HIV epidemic population has propelled demand for safe blood transfusion. In India, National AIDS Control Program, since its initiation of Phase one (NACP 1992-1999), has been focusing on blood safety and has invested 30% of its project cost focusing on significant improvements in the availability of quality of blood/blood products, infrastructure, equipment, and service delivery in phase one.
Increasing participation of government also plays a crucial role in growth of the market. For instance, in April 2017, Government of India: Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, launched ‘Test and Treat Policy for HIV’. According to this policy, as soon as a person is tested and found to be positive, patient will be provided with Antiretroviral Therapy (ART) irrespective of his CD4 count or clinical stage. This will be helpful for all men, women, adolescents, and children who have been diagnosed as HIV positive and will further improve longevity, improve quality of life of infected people
Government support to manufacturers in the HIV diagnostics market with funding and product approvals is also expected to boost the market growth. For instance, in December 2017, the Atomo HIV Self-Test was approved by the WHO’s Expert Review Panel for Diagnostics (ERP-D), to expedite access to innovative diagnostic products in advance of approvals through the WHO prequalification process. In October, 2016, Atomo Diagnostics received US$ 2.6 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a next-generation HIV self-test. This grant will support the development of an affordable, reliable, and simple HIV rapid diagnostic test.
Manufacturers in the industry are focusing on launching new and cost effective products in the region. For instance, in February 2015, Becton, Dickinson and Company launched BD FACSPresto in India. BD FACSPresto is a Near Patient CD4 monitoring system, which offers absolute and percentage results of CD4 T lymphocytes and hemoglobin (Hb) concentration in whole blood samples.
