The University of Panama (UP), the Institute for Scientific Research and High Technology Services (INDICASAT), the Gorgas Memorial Institute for Health Studies (GMI), and the City of Knowledge Foundation (FCDS) invite you to the biosciences discussion session: Role of society to coinfection of Tuberculosis and Human Immunodeficiency Virus, which will be held on Wednesday, September 2, at the City of Knowledge Training and Business Center.

Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection is one of the major health problems affecting Panamanian society. Tuberculosis is the most common disease among people living with HIV. Social empowerment is key to controlling these diseases.

In this discussion session we will seek to discuss with experts in the fields of medicine, research and social assistance on the increasing incidence in the coexistence of both diseases, seeking social mobilization to combat the issue.

Speakers will be Griselda Arteaga, Department of Microbiology, Immunology Section (UP / GMI); Amador Goodridge (INDICASAT); and Ruby Sánchez of the Coalition for Comprehensive Sexuality Education.
