One of the main objectives of Krisp, AWACC SATuRN and CAPRISA is to support the NDoH and build capacity among clinicians to manage patients who still present in advanced HIV and TB clinical disease. In addition, we aim to build capacity as part of the CAPRISA ACC to manage patients who fail virologically and those who may need third line ART.
