Diagnostics Services - Advanced diagnostic services

Fifty-four hospitals (54) were assessed for the availability of advanced diagnostic services. On average, one in every four offered services. Over half of the facilities could perform urine dipstick tests. About one in every three facilities offered blood assays, such as renal and liver function tests, and cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) counts. Immunology tests were rare at the 54 facilities. Only 4% offered HIV antibody tests; 6% offered cryptococcal antigen; and 15% offered CD4 count tests.
