How you have helped GAFFI so far?
Personal comment on the major needs in South Africa which GAFFI should be addressing:
As South Africa has the largest HIV epidemic in the world and straddles a mixture of high and low income healthcare services, the major effort is to provide leadership on fungal diseases, from an epidemiology and diagnostic perspective.
