Dr Navlin Naidoo in conjunction with the Department of Dermatology at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, conducted research on the skin barrier, particularly those of paediatric patients who are infected with HIV.
Naidoo said he would be submitting the data at the 23rd International Aids Conference next year as it was important towards understanding HIV and therefore the fight against it.
“This knowledge is not limited to people living in South Africa but the greater International community at large. I will also be presenting this research at the dermatology conference in Cape Town in September later this year,” he said.
Recently, he presented this research at the International Youth Summit for young professionals, the Global Youth Advancement Summit, hosted by the University of Michigan in the US.
