Report on the SATuRN & CAPRISA HIV & TB Advanced Clinical Care Workshop

SATuRN & CAPRISA - 2015-04-13

The Southern Africa Treatment and Resistance Network (SATuRN) and the Centre for the AIDS Programme of Research in South Africa (CAPRISA) organized a HIV & TB Advanced Clinical Care Workshop. This workshop is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) & PEPFAR program in South Africa.

The second workshop was presented at Markaranga Garden Lodge in Durban South Africa. In total 62 participants were selected from 108 applicants. The great majority of the participants (> 80%) were clinicians that are dealing with complex HIV & TB clinical cases in KwaZulu-Natal.

The workshop had 11 presenters, including some of the most respected physicians and scientists of the HIV and TB drug resistance field in the country. The workshop generated great discussion and the highlight was the discussion of clinical cases that involved both HIV & TB drug resistance infections.

The workshop ended with a questions and answers sections. As part of this a hot-line was created at CAPRISA, for which any clinician facing a difficult HIV & TB case can phone to get advice on how to manage it.

In summary, this was SATuRN first successful workshop with CAPRISA. We will be also presenting another specialized workshop on the 8 and 9 of May 2015 with them, which we will blog about it. This collaboration is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) & PEPFAR program in South Africa.
