SATuRN output: reports, clinical cases & publications

Here we provide you with HIV & TB drug resistance information in the form of reports, clinical cases, tweets and publications.

In this new section of the bioafrica.net website, physicians, researchers and public health officials can learn about our drug resistance work and its application to the management of patients failing ARVs and anti-TB therapies.
