Universal Test and Treat (UTT) Trial Results

Thursday, November 21, 2019

As this table shows, the two trials that offered community-wide testing in both arms (SEARCH, TasP) did not find a difference in incidence between the arms. One explanation may be that the expanded access to testing and linkage in both arms had an impact in both intervention and control communities. The two trials that only provided universal testing in the intervention arm identified differences in incidence between that arm and the control arm.

There were other differences between the four UTT trials. As described below, PopART was the only trial with urban and peri-urban communities.
