Ugeskr Læger 2018;180:V06180464
For 40 years, Bandim Health Project in Guinea-Bissau has been working on mapping epidemics, uncovering the impact of health interventions and trying to improve the health of the population in one of the world‘s poorest countries. The primary focus has been on child mortality and vaccine effects, but considerable effort has also been made in many other fields. This review describes the work with the three major infectious diseases: HIV, tuberculosis and malaria, and the most important findings are reviewed for each disease.
