The goal of the preventcrypto.org partnership is to ensure that every country in the world with a major AIDS epidemic has access to the basic tools for provider and patient education about cryptococcosis, and cryptococcal screening and treatment. Over time, cryptococcal screening and treatment will become a routine part of HIV/AIDS care. As the expansion of HIV testing, linkage to care, and access to antiretroviral therapy increases, the need for the screening and treatment of cryptococcal disease will decline. Until that time, cryptococcal screening and treatment programs can prevent thousands of deaths.
Preventcrypto.org is an international collaboration between government and non-governmental organizations, academic institutions, and private industry partners. We are public health professionals, healthcare providers, academic researchers, and laboratorians dedicated to reducing the global burden of cryptococcal disease.
Please join the effort to save thousands of lives. Help make cryptococcal disease history.
