Aurum Institute


Aurum is an internationally recognised, specialist research and health systems management organisation. Our focus is TB and HIV prevention, treatment and care. The negative impact of the poor understanding and management of these epidemics is vast, affecting individuals, communities and economies. The recognition of the huge advantages of controlling these diseases is Aurum's motivation.

Aurum has an international reputation for its work in the fields of tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and is the recipient of research and other grants from South African and international agencies and institutions for this work.

We are focused on researching and implementing integrated approaches to managing HIV and TB.
