Médecins Sans Frontières study follows dissident footprints

An MSF study found problems with specificity in eight rapid HIV tests. Additionally, gender and geographical location were correlated with false-positives. These are among the reasons for using confirmatory tests.

Simply, some of these tests are more capable than others of picking up probable biomarkers of health stress.
