Reportlinker Adds HIV Diagnostics Market in India
NEW YORK, June 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
This report covers the HIV diagnostics market in India. HIV stands out as a highly lucrative and expanding market for diagnostics because of the close integration of diagnostics in day-to-day disease diagnosis, management, and drug selection. HIV was first identified in India in 1986, in Chennai, shortly after the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) initiated surveillance for HIV. Surveillance was later taken over by the National AIDS Control Organization (NACO), set up under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
India is planning to scale up prevention of HIV to avoid having to spend an increasing share of its health budget on treatment of AIDS patients, according the World Bank and other agencies. India has over 2.5 million AIDS patients currently. India spends about 5 percent of its $5.4 billion healthcare budget on treating AIDS patients. India may have to spend $1.8 billion by 2020, about 7 percent of the total health expenditure, the World Bank said.
