CAPS Town Hall Presents Gabriel Chamie, MD, MPH – Universal HIV testing using a “hybrid” approach in East Africa
Dr. Chamie will discuss the effectiveness of a “hybrid” mobile HIV testing approach of multi-disease community health campaigns followed by home-based testing (HBT), to achieve population-wide HIV testing coverage in the SEARCH Trial.
Gabriel Chamie is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at UCSF, in the Division of HIV/AIDS at San Francisco General Hospital. His research focuses on community-based HIV and tuberculosis (TB) diagnosis, multi-disease health campaigns, and TB/HIV co-infection in East Africa. He is Chair of the SEARCH Trial working group implementing baseline censuses and population-wide HIV testing in 32 communities of 10,000 persons each in Uganda and Kenya.
