TB2016 prior to AIDS2016, Durban, July
ABOUT THE MEETING
TB is one of the world’s deadliest communicable diseases. More than 9 million people develop TB annually and 1.5 million die from the disease. Worldwide, MDR- and XDR-TB are transmitted unabated. Thousands of patients languish on waiting lists to receive effective treatment. In recognition of the need for greater attention to the global TB epidemic, the International AIDS Society (IAS) is organizing TB2016 – a two-day conference dedicated exclusively to this infectious disease. The preliminary TB2016 programme is now available to view online here.
Date: Saturday, 16 and Sunday, 17 July
Location: Durban International Convention Centre (ICC)

Services for migrants and refugees from Ukraine – HIV/TB care with a focus on key populations
Due to the increasing flows of refugees from Ukraine because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EECA Regional Platform created a spreadsheet to fill contacts details of face-to-face and online services for refugees and migrants (with a focus on HIV/TB care and key population groups).
If you provide such services or know verified providers, please fill out the spreadsheet at your earliest convenience, and, please, update it as more verified information is available. These can be services for national citizens if they are also accessible to international migrants and refugees.
