At the 21st International AIDS Conference in Durban, South Africa in July 2016, Dr. Katie Simon presented findings from a study highlighting how community health workers can be utilized to address tuberculosis case detection, which often infects people living with HIV. This study found that intensified tuberculosis case finding (TB ICF) by CHWs was associated with a 20-fold increase in TB case detection at an antiretroviral therapy clinic in Malawi. A complete summary of the presentation can be found here and the PowerPoint presentation can be downloaded below.
