the diversity of the HIV epidemic, new scientific
evidence and the promising interventions on the
horizon to tackle it.
UKZN’s College of Health Sciences, Caprisa, K-RITH, Heard, Health Systems Trust and the National Health Laboratory Services commemorated World Aids Day with a panel discussion featuring prominent researchers in the field. Each of these stakeholders have made significant contributions to addressing the worldwide challenges of the epidemic through research that has guided international health policies, the hosting of the National Aids Conference, the improvement of health systems in the country and through building capacity.
The panel discussion, with the theme “Bringing the ‘I’ into HIV” focussed on new approaches in developing person-centred interventions to fight the HIV epidemic.
