Following is a response from DHS staff member Tom Pullum:

Those variables are blank and have "na" in the label because there were no additional tests. You can see the sequence for HIV with ha61-ha63. If there had been an additional test, there would also have been a variable for the "result of measurement". The data files usually include many "na" variables that you could think of as reserved for potential use but the data were not included in the fieldwork for that specific survey.
