Diabetes and Hypertension: Better diagnosis among TB patients in Luanda

Diabetes and Hypertension: Better diagnosis among TB patients in Luanda

People with diabetes have a risk of developing tuberculosis (TB) 3 to 5 times higher than that of the general population. Moreover, diabetes can worsen the clinical course of TB and TB can worsen glycaemic control in people with diabetes. For these reasons, Doctors with Africa CUAMM is implementing a two year pilot project, financed by the World Diabetes Foundation, to improve diabetes and hypertension detection and treatment among TB patients  in the Luanda Province.
