Africa Health Research Institute (GBP record) 6 month partial award (360G-Wellcome-201433_Z_16_Z)

Our aim is to reduce the huge burden of HIV and TB in KwaZulu-Natal as a precursor to the eradication of these diseases. This will be facilitated by merging the population based research excellence of the Wellcome Trust (WT)-funded Africa Centre (AC), with the cutting edge laboratory science and experimental medicine approaches of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI)- funded KwaZulu-Natal Institute for Research in TB and HIV (K-RITH) to create an exciting, interdisciplinary South African based research initiative. Our 5-year vision is to use basic science, systems biology, health systems and social science research to undertake fundamental discoveries into the susceptibility, transmission and cure of HIV and TB. Our specific questions are: 1. How can new HIV infections best be eliminated? 2. How can TB transmission be interrupted and how can drug-resistance be contained? 3. How can the health of pregnant women with HIV and their offspring be improved? 4. How can we improve the health-system delivery and population-level impact of HIV treatment and other chronic disease care? 5. How is health and wellbeing affected by migration, economic and other inequalities
