Final MSF submission on the copyright bill
Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organisation with operations in South Africa and 62 other countries, which provides impartial medical assistance to those affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters or exclusion from healthcare.
In celebration of World Aids Day 2015 (1 December), a group of HIV positive people and advocates living in Khayelitsha, Cape Town, in collaboration with local artists and musicians, bring a powerful message of living active, creative lives, and proving that HIV is in no way a death sentence.
Drug Resistant TB patient support training module
Drug resistant tuberculosis (DR TB) patient support models of care were designed and piloted by MSF OCB Khayelitsha project in response to the need for a structured approach to the treatment literacy and counseling offered to patients diagnosed with DR TB.
Pushing the envelope
Since the Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria (GF) cancelled its funding round in 2011, Doctors Without Borders (MSF), governments, and people affected by the three diseases have all called for international efforts to scale up HIV, TB and malaria programmes to be put back on track.
