BD and PEPFAR Collaborate to Strengthen Laboratory Systems in Fight Against HIV/AIDS and TB
Date:10/31/2007

capacity for HIV/AIDS testing and monitoring, BD and PEPFAR will work to advance TB diagnostic capabilities in sub-Saharan Africa. Specifically, the partnership will focus on improving training materials and practices or the diagnosis and management of people living with HIV/AIDS who are co-infected with TB.

Activities in the BD/PEPFAR collaboration will primarily be implemented through country-specific programs in Cote d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Malawi, Mozambique, and South Africa and short-term technical assistance to provide training for all levels of service. BD and PEPFAR will work on the ground with Ministries of Health, National Reference Laboratories and implementing partners to expand high-quality laboratory services based on a National Laboratory Strategic Plan. For example, in South Africa, the collaboration will enable the new regional training laboratory to double the number of trainings offered to all PEPFAR-supported countries in Africa. This regional laboratory will also be able to significantly expand the number of health care workers trained to provide quality HIV testing. By enabling expanded counseling and testing efforts, more Africans will know their status, benefit from appropriate prevention counseling, and receive referrals for life-saving treatment. In the first year alone, it is estimated that this public-private partnership will allow PEPFAR to increase laboratory capacity 15-20% over current levels.
