The Center for Global Health Policy hosted five congressional staff members on a trip to South Africa and Zambia in August. The Hill staff joined Christine Lubinski, IDSA’s vice president for global health, and other Center staff during visits to U.S. government-funded programs addressing HIV and tuberculosis (TB) to give them a first-hand view of the important strides these programs are making and the areas where additional support is needed.
Check the Center’s blog, Science Speaks, for extensive reports and photos from the trip. Highlights include: “A massive funding gap forecast in Zambia,” a post exploring the potential lack of financing needed to reach the country’s targets for expanded access to antiretroviral therapy, and “Zambia moving fast to scale up male circumcision,” where David Bryden, IDSA’s senior program policy officer for global health, describes a male circumcision site the group visited on their trip.
