................whereas by pricking their fingers and checking the blood a 100% accurate result was achieved.

I would imagine the cost of the research in Milton Keynes (excluding the cost of a specialised dog handler etc) exceeds the cost of a blood test for everyone in the Gambia (population approx 2million).

Indeed, the cost of the needed pair of socks for everyone probably costs more than the cost of a blood test. One blood prick sample can also be used to test for other diseases.
