HIV in the News

18 November 2011

  • Swazi Observer

    United Nations Development Fund (UNDP) has pumped an amount of US$ 500 000 towards strengthening a volunteer programme aimed at building capacity within local HIV fighting NGOs.

    UNDP Deputy Resident Representative Karibu Nasidi donated a car and equipment for the project which will be housed under the National Emergency Response Council on HIV and AIDS (NERCHA).

  • Swazi Observer

    The TB Alliance announces the launch of a collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and infectious Diseases' (NIAID) AIDS Clinical Trial Group to complete a phase of trial testing for potentially faster-acting tuberculosis treatments.

    Few clinical trials for TB have been conducted under modern GCP/GCLP standards in the past 40 years, and the infrastructure to support invigorated global TB drug research is lacking, especially in resource-limited settings where the majority of TB cases are found.
