Table 2 Average unit cost * of 6 algorithms at various HIV prevalence rates in a hypothetical population of 5,000 persons

From: Field comparison of OraQuick® ADVANCE Rapid HIV-1/2 antibody test and two blood-based rapid HIV antibody tests in Zambia

Algorithm Average Cost (US$) at different HIV Prevalence
