A world-renown Haiti clinic that has become a leader in global health while leading the fight against HIV/AIDS now has one more accolade to add to its file: fighter against tuberculosis.
….The annual prize is given to organizations that have made a significant contribution to combating TB. This year’s $65,000 prize was designated for fighting TB in conflict and refugee areas.
…. the funds will help toward the construction of a TB hospital in construction. GHESKIO also is building a Family Nutrition Center, as well as continuing its outreach with residents living in the low-lying Village of God slum across from its downtown Port-au-Prince clinic.
The award ceremony for the Kochon Prize will take place Jan. 31 in Cape Town, South Africa.
