HIV / AIDS

  • There are an estimated 2.4 million people living with HIV/AIDS in India
  • Costs for monitoring HIV is extremely high, both in terms of economics (e.g. lost wages, lost hours of work) and social burden (e.g. family members need to take care of sick relatives).
  • Although centrifuging blood is not necessary for all diagnostic test for HIV/AIDS, ┬áthose tests we saw and were supplied by the government in India required separated blood. CentriCycle will also be able to support diagnosis by allowing preservation of blood in case tests cannot be performed on-site
