HOW TO CONTROL THE TUBERCULOSIS AND HIV/AIDS EPIDEMIC By PHILIP ANOCHIE
Paperback: $14.96
Prints in 3-5 business days
Many people , including those living with HIV, do not know that TB is curable. This is a basic message and one thing that is failing to get through. We should know how to get the message to policy-... More > makers and funders that more drugs are needed for both diseases. It is not “either/or’, there is no point providing ARVs only for patients to die of TB for lack of TB resources. Similarly , TB efforts alone are insufficient. HIV/AIDS is dramatically fuelling the TB epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa, where up to 70% of TB patients are co-infected with HIV in some countries. For many years efforts to tackle TB and HIV have been largely separate, despite the overlapping epidemiology. Improved collaboration between TB and HIV/AIDS programmes will lead to more effective control of TB among HIV- infected people and to significant public health gains.< Less

Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Robert Koch (* 11. Dezember 1843 in Clausthal; † 27. Mai... More > 1910 in Baden-Baden; vollständiger Name Heinrich Hermann Robert Koch) war ein deutscher Mediziner und Mikrobiologe. Koch gelang es 1876, den Erreger des Milzbrands (Bacillus anthracis) außerhalb des Organismus zu kultivieren und seinen Lebenszyklus zu beschreiben. Dadurch wurde zum ersten Mal lückenlos die Rolle eines Krankheitserregers beim Entstehen einer Krankheit beschrieben. 1882 entdeckte er den Erreger der Tuberkulose (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) und entwickelte später das vermeintliche Heilmittel Tuberkulin. 1905 erhielt er den Nobelpreis für Physiologie oder Medizin. Robert Koch ist damit – neben seinem Kollegen Louis Pasteur in Paris – zum Begründer der modernen Bakteriologie und Mikrobiologie geworden.
