Description:Caption:
During this meeting, which had taken place in the Hout Bay Harbour Community Health Clinic, located in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa, part of the discussion focused on the improved efficiencies in TB testing through the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) partnership with the TB/HIV Care Association, resulting in dramatically shortened testing time, leading to fewer people spreading TB, and better TB patient outcomes. This image depicts two meeting attendees, a Health Clinic staff member on the left, and Prof. Harry Hausler, Ph.D., M.P.H., the Chief Executive Officer of TB/HIV Care Association, and the principal investigator of Project Integrate.
Additional Information:
CDC started work in South Africa in 1989, helping partners address HIV. In 1994, CDC began to collaborate with the government to conduct epidemiology training, develop national health goals and objectives, develop national HIV clinical, ethical, and research guidelines, and support HIV and TB programs.
