Created on September 10, 2012, this photograph was captured in the Pharmacy of the Hout Bay Harbour Community Health Clinic, located in Hout Bay, Cape Town, South Africa, and depicts pharmacist, Jackie Oliver, R.Ph., whose job it is to provide integrated treatment to HIV and tuberculosis (TB) patients. Note the numerous shelved pharmaceuticals that line the wall behind the pharmacist, who is familiar with all these medications, their functions, and interactions.
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.
