HIV-Glasgow 2018 – HIV-associated tuberculosis: diagnosis, management, and prevention

Dr Graeme Meintjes presents an overview of diagnostic and prevention issues in adult patients with HIV-associated tuberculosis. Estimates for 2017 showed that approximately 10% of global TB cases occurred in HIV infected people. This group also displays a disproportionately high TB mortality rate. However, incidence rates of HIV-associated TB have declined over the last decade.
