Infectious diseases are the leading causes of death and disability world wide. HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and sexually transmitted diseases are readily identifiable through laboratory tests however strategies to implement testing and realize the benefits of treatment are often lacking. Prof Jeffrey Klausner was a deputy health officer in San Francisco, 1998-2011 and played a key role in increasing access to HIV testing. From 2009-2011 he was Chief of the HIV and TB Branch for the CDC PEPFAR program in South Africa where he helped scale-up testing and treatment services. Currently as Professor of Medicine and Public Health at the UCLA schools of medicine and public health he conducts research on infectious disease prevention, detection and treatment in Peru, Haiti, Botswana, South Africa and Los Angeles. Prof. Klausner will discuss how infectious diseases can be controlled at scale to maximize the benefits of early detection and treatment at the population level.
