Neuropsychological testing of HIV-infected individuals has an important role to play in the diagnosis and management of HIV-associated neurocognitive disorders. The value of such testing may be particularly great in resource-limited settings, especially internationally, where non-behavioral diagnostic modalities such as neuroimaging are limited or non-existent. This chapter, which discusses neuropsychological testing in resource-limited settings, may be particularly relevant to geographic areas where the disease burden is high, such as sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. This chapter discusses the goals, current status, and challenges associated with neuropsychological assessment and interpretation in resource-limited settings.
