located in Harar, eastern Ethiopia. A convenience sample of
patients who visited the adult outpatient departments of Hiwot Fana
and Misrak Arbegnoch teaching hospitals from January 2007 to

University where the laboratory used for this study is located. The
patient flow of the hospitals ranges from rural and urban dwellers to
clients of diverse socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds.
