HIV prevalence on a worldwide scale maintains a high occurrence rate with new infections each year in the millions, so the conceptual 'CATCH HIV Detector' aims to help make it easier for those in developing nations to test from home.

The tester is the design work of Hans Ramzan and works by being slid over the finger; the integrated disinfectant sleeve will clean the area before the integrated needle can be pressed down to draw blood. The press of the integrated button will provide instant test results without the need for a lab or healthcare professional to make testing far more accessible for those in rural areas to perform from home.

The 'CATCH HIV Detector' could be produced at a cost of just £4 per unit and could help to drastically cut down on the number of people who don't know their status to help curb the virus from spreading.
