Good morning and thank you for the opportunity to join you this morning.

South Africa is burdened by one of the most severe TB epidemics in the world, while also dealing with the greatest burden of HIV-infected individuals.  TB prevalence is the world’s third highest, and millions are living with HIV/AIDS with hundreds of thousands of new infections each year. 

South Africa has made remarkable progress in responding to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and has the largest antiretroviral treatment program in the world, an accomplishment which speaks for itself and one of which the country should be proud.
