SATVI wins Social
Responsiveness Award
Established in 2001, the South African Tuberculosis
Vaccine Initiative (SATVI) was presented with
UCT’s 2018 Social Responsiveness Award.
Social responsiveness is UCT’s third
pillar of academic performance
criteria, alongside teaching and
learning, and research. Accordingly,
the annual award recognises
individuals and groups employed
by the university whose scholarly
initiatives and undertakings play an
effective developmental role in a
cultural, economic, political, scientific
and/or social environment.
Located within the Department of
Pathology’s Institute of Infectious
Disease and Molecular Medicine in
UCT’s Faculty of Health Sciences, and
with a field office in Worcester, SATVI
is a tuberculosis research group set up
with the objective of developing better
prevention strategies to curb the disease.
Alongside its clinical research
agenda, SATVI has engaged with local
communities in the Cape Winelands
district through a portfolio of social
responsiveness programmes, which
have included drama productions such
as Carina’s Choice co-developed with
Worcester Secondary School (pictured),
to help raise awareness about TB and
clinical research.
