Mali is a low-income country in Sub-Saharan West Africa where the incidence of mycobacterial infections, primarily tuberculosis, remains high driven in a large part by the persistence of the HIV epidemic with TB being the main cause of dealth for adults and children with HIV-infected patients. The overarching goal of this proposed research training program, “Building the Next Generation of Researchers in HIV/TB Diagnostics in Mali”, is to build capacity to develop and implement diagnostic and monitoring technologies to address relevant high priority research topics. Through this program, we will achieve the overall goal of training the next generation of scientists and leaders in diagnostics of HIV and mycobacterial diseases in Mali and the region.
