Other conditions

We also work on other conditions and interventions (in addition to cancer, HIV and TB), where we can make an important contribution to improving health. These include:

  • respiratory diseases including pleural infection and obstructive sleep apnoea
  • dermatology
  • blood transfusions
  • influenza (flu)
  • overdose management
  • other infections, including hospital acquired infections and antibiotic resistance
