Evaluation of an empiric risk screening score to identify acute and early HIV-1 infection among MSM in Coastal Kenya.
We evaluated the University of North CarolinaMalawi Risk Screening Score (UMRSS) for detection of acute and early HIV-1 infection (AEHI) in a cohort of Kenyan MSM with approximately 8% annual HIV-1 incidence.
