South Africa is considering setting up a "disease control hub" to help tackle healthcare priorities, such as HIV/AIDS, TB and diabetes. President Jacob Zuma and British entrepreneur Richard Branson have met to discuss a "possible public-private partnership" between the non-profit foundation of Branson's Virgin Group, Virgin Unite, and the government. The hub would also "help ensure that existing health initiatives were better integrated and supported", the presidency said.
