Through U.S. - CDC/PEPFAR funding, the TB/HIV Care Association has integrated TB/HIV screening, testing, and treatment, helping to save lives in South Africa.
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.
