There is a large tuberculosis epidemic in Romania in patients with HIV, much of which is drug resistant.
JUSTRI has been asked to provide an intensive 2 day course to help educate Romanian & SEE doctors about HIV and tuberculosis as well as to develop working practices to address this epidemic and improve the interface with TB services.
A recent WHO review of TB in the country highlighted major concerns over the current provision of treatment and care, especially for MDR TB.
“I really like the foreign speakers, very open-minded I also liked Victor Spinu, Dr Mardarescu, Cristina Papa & Mariana Mardarescu. Very interesting idea experience the pneumologist and infectious disease physician perspectives. We need each other’s experience & knowledge.”
