Activities

The Division of infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine at University of Cape Town was founded in 2007, two years after the recognition of Infectious Diseases as a sub-specialty of Medicine in South Africa. The Division encompasses the Clinical Unit at Groote Schuur Hospital and two independent research centres, The Centre for Infectious Diseases Research Initiative-Africa (CIDRI-Africa) directed by Professor Robert Wilkinson, and the Desmond Tutu HIV Center (DTHC) directed by Professor Linda-Gail Bekker. It became the first GeoSentinnel Travel Surveillance Network Site in Africa in 2008 and one of two National Training Centres for Antimicrobial Stewardship in 2014.

Clinical Services

The clinical unit at Groote Schuur Hospital provides an inpatient consult service to the hospital with daily consultant-led ward rounds and a joint care management strategy to continue input until discharge. Between 500-750 consultations are undertaken annually. A tertiary level HIV outpatient clinic is undertaken weekly, seeing referrals from within GSH and from referring hospitals and clinics. The ID team perform outreach infectious diseases rounds at DP Marais Hospital, Brooklyn Chest Hospital, Mitchells Plain Hospital, and ad hoc service provision to Victoria, New Somerset, and False Bay hospitals. Antibiotic stewardship rounds are performed weekly in the departments of General Internal Medicine, Haematology, and Orthopaedics. The Division works seamlessly with National Health Laboratory Service colleagues in clinical microbiology and virology to ensure optimum diagnostic and antimicrobial stewardship.

A newly appointed sub-specialist in Infectious Diseases (Dr Nectarios Papavarnavas) now leads Groote Schuur Hospital’s Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) programme, with a team of three dedicated IPC practitioners.

Teaching and Training

The Division is the most prolific training centre for Infectious Diseases Fellows in South Africa, offering a 2-year MPhil training programme towards the Cert ID(SA)Phys examination and having trained 13 ID sub-specialists since 2007. It is a national training centre for Antimicrobial Stewardship, training doctor-nurse-pharmacist teams from hospitals across South Africa and on the African continent. We have also published guidelines for antibiotic prescribing in South Africa for the South African Antibiotic Stewardship Programme. The Division is a European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ESCMID) Collaborating Centre, welcoming Infectious Diseases trainees from Europe for 1-month observerships in clinical infectious diseases.

A weekly academic programme is undertaken jointly with the departments of Clinical Microbiology and Virology, including blood culture rounds, Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Grand Rounds and a joint academic meeting to present cases, review leading publications and welcome national and international speakers. Talks from these meetings are uploaded onto the GSH Infectious Diseases YouTube Channel.

Members of the Division are involved in undergraduate and postgraduate teaching in infectious diseases and HIV medicine for UCT, and we welcome multiple undergraduate elective students from across the world. For students wishing to undertake an undergraduate elective, we suggest applying to the UCT electives office one year prior to your preferred dates.

Research

The research activities of the Division focus on the major burden of infection in South Africa, namely HIV, tuberculosis, and antibiotic resistant bacterial infections. As a GeoSentinel Travel Surveillance Network Site, our research also includes surveillance for emerging and re-emerging infections in travellers. Notable firsts have been renal transplantation of HIV-infected donor kidneys to HIV-positive recipients (led by Professor Muller, Transplantation Surgery) and the first identification of Emmonsia africanus, a dimorphic fungal infection in advanced HIV-infection, the results of both being published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The combined research outputs of the Division of Infectious Diseases and HIV Medicine comprise the largest contribution of publications to the Faculty of Health Sciences.

The Wellcome Centre for Infectious Diseases Research in Africa (CIDRI-Africa) was established to foster investigator-led approaches into common continental infectious causes of morbidity and mortality while nurturing the next generation of researchers. Specialist expertise within CIDRI-Africa has predominantly focused on HIV-1, tuberculosis, and the interaction of these diseases. However, no infectious agent is excluded, as recently evidenced in our rapid redirection of resources to the COVID-19 pandemic. Moreover, since South Africa and Africa face a rising non-communicable disease toll, the intersection of communicable and non-communicable morbidities

constitutes a growing priority. The centre has 6 emeritus, 12 principal, 33 contributing investigators, 15 Fellows and 34 mentees.

The Desmond Tutu HIV Center pairs internationally acclaimed research with community-driven development programmes, striving to improve the health and wellbeing of communities it serves while contributing to local and national health policy. It has established clinical research sites with research that includes HIV prevention modalities, vaccine candidates, treatment delivery and adherence , clinical trials, ground-breaking new drugs, and innovation technologies to address tuberculosis transmission. In addition, a socio-behavioural division seeks to understand the complex drivers affecting individual health-seeking behaviour.
