Ethiopia: HIV Testing Success

The Washington-based Student Center for African Research and Resolutions (SCARR) published on 16 January 2015 a brief report titled "A Record Number of HIV Tests in Ethiopia" by Kaleab Brook, a former student of mine at George Washington University.

Kaleab reports that a one-day test for HIV in Gambella region of Ethiopia reached more than 3,300 people, a possible one-day Guinness World Record.  The testing determined that 82 persons were HIV positive.  They have been put in contact with healthcare facilities for support, treatment, and follow-up.
