Recognizing the strong infectious disease infrastructure in place in some LMICs, the NCD-Link project in Durban, South Africa, in partnership with Advance Access and Delivery and the South African Medical Research Council (SAMRC) has used TB as an entry point to start screening patients and their contacts for diabetes and hypertension in clinics and patient households. The project uses an improved diagnostic algorithm aligned with national guidelines for treatment, support and education of patients and families with diabetes and hypertension.
