Zimbabwe Nurse Wins International Award for Groundbreaking Research in HIV/TB by Idowu Olabode : August 02, 2017, 06:59:06 PM
 Zimbabwean nurse has been awarded an HIV/TB Research Prize at this year’s International Aids Society Conference in Paris.

Chenai Mathabire produced scientific evidence that an easy-to-use tuberculosis test can be rolled out as a diagnostic tool in community healthcare clinics.

She did research in Lawai and Mozambique.

The study is based on the efficacy of a TB test which quickly detects tuberculosis in patients living with advanced HIV.



It picks up a certain protein, Lipoarabinomannan, in the urine of patients when TB bacteria cells break down.

The Zimbabwean Doctors Without Borders nurse says the test will accelerate the pace at which medicine is dispensed to needy patients.

“Although we’re providing ARVs to the people, we need to manage cases with advanced HIV.”

Doctors Without Borders will use the study to persuade health ministries in countries with a high HIV/TB burden to utilise the device within its primary healthcare centres and hospitals.
