Introduction: Southern African Treatment and Resistance Network (SATuRN)

SATuRN currently includes 24 research partners in southern Africa that support our initiatives. We have collated over 7,000 resistance genotypes linked to treatment and clinical information and host two of the best HIV drug resistance databases in the world (The Stanford HIV Drug Resistance Database and RegaDB Clinical Management and Drug resistance Database). To advance access to drug resistance testing to patients, providers and programs, we have been working with a network of academics laboratories to develop and implement a cheaper resistance genotype test. We have also delivered training in drug resistance testing and management to over 2,000 physician and nurses in southern Africa...
