The combined epidemics of HIV and TB continue to be a major challenge to health services worldwide. The limitations of current diagnostics are a major obstacle to universal access to high quality treatment which is most needed in regions with poor infrastructure. We will consider a novel model that has lead to the development of a new point of care CD4 test now under evaluation. The implications of this approach will be discussed for TB and other HIV related diagnostics, particularly focused on defining and meeting the needs in resource poor settings.
