Created on September 11, 2012, this photograph was captured inside the Prince Cyril Zulu Clinic, the largest government out-patient TB, and STD treatment facility in Durban, South Africa. In this view a clinical radiologist was reviewing a patient’s chest x-ray, discussing her findings with a colleague. The U. S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) supports HIV & TB research at Prince Cyril Zulu Clinic, where results inform the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S., as to appropriate guidelines to be followed when treating co-infected patients, and preventing the spread of diseases.
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.
