Everybody Breathes: Treating TB in Eshowe, South Africa

South Africa

South Africa has the largest HIV patient cohort in the world and is helping to lead the way in gaining access to new treatments for multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB).

In KwaZulu-Natal province, our project’s community-oriented approach is to increase integrated HIV testing and TB screening, as well as access and adherence to HIV treatment.

The Khayelitsha project near Cape Town continues to develop and implement treatment regimens for MDR-TB and innovative models of care for patients living with HIV and TB.

Our teams are currently responding to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic in South Africa.
