Working Together for HIV and Tuberculosis Prevention in the Dominican Republic

By Yolanda Gonzalez Malave, Program Assistant & HR Coordinator

Guara Bi Dominican Republic was invited by the management of Hospital Municipal Mata Hambre in Santo Domingo to participate in their plan for HIV and tuberculosis prevention. The objective is to promote a massive social and community mobilization through strategic alliances to implement interventions that will reduce the number of cases of both diseases in vulnerable groups, improve detection, ensure patient adherence to treatment, and achieve the goal of zero deaths from these diseases. We are pleased to be a part of this initiative and help contribute in the efforts to prevent, detect cases, follow up on treatment, and manage clients’ active participation in prevention campaigns that will be developed by the hospital to fight HIV and tuberculosis.
