Project details

Sanigest was contracted by the UNDP to perform an epidemiological assessment of the prevalence of HIV-TB co-infection in South Sudan. The study was based on Stop TB Program and Surveillance Guidelines of WHO. Our team performed a basic review of particular issues and topics which provided an overview of the current situation in Southern Sudan.

The study examined: 

  1. Analysis of current system for HIV and TB surveillance, Linkages between HIV and TB reporting databases , current and reliable data on prevalence of HIV infection in the general population and/or among at-risk population groups (IDUs, SWs, MSM, prisoners), the prevalence of TB in the general population and/or among at-risk population groups.

Our team also examined: the laboratory capacity currently available for diagnosing TB and HIV infections. The availability of services for those seeking HIV testing and counseling, the availability of services for TB patients seeking HIV testing and counseling, the  level of training of the staff to conduct the surveillance and the case definition for TB patients who are co-infected with HIV
