E-DRUG: WHO updated recommendations on SD Bioline HIV 1/2-3.0 test
------------------------------------------------------------------
[A warning from WHO about problems with an HIV test. Thanks to Libby for 
spotting. WB]

The WHO issued a second informational update on SD Bioline HIV 
1/2-3.0 on July 6, 2012.  

In brief, they recommend that national authorities discontinue use of all 
defective lots of SD Bioline HIV 1/2-3.0 and place them in quarantine.  

Furthermore, SD Bioline HIV-1/2 3.0 will remain ineligible for procurement by 
WHO until further notice.

The one-page information sheet is available at:
