Talking Global Health With Channel Africa

South Africa has the sixth highest burden of TB in the world, after China and India. Lilly’s Amy Israel talks to Channel Africa, a radio station in South Africa, about the importance of integrated care and bringing treatment closer to communities affected by multidrug-resistant and extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB and XDR-TB). Amy also talks about the Lilly MDR-TB Partnership, which is supporting the South African government’s drive towards the decentralization of MDR-TB treatment, as well as maximizing reporting and advocating efforts to scale up models of care.
