The 2021 National Guidelines for the management of TB/HIV

TB and HIV constitute major public health problems in Nigeria. The burden of these diseases is further compounded by the impact they have on each other; HIV fuels the burden of TB while TB on the other hand is the commonest infection among People Living with HIV (PLHIV). The interaction between these two diseases increases the morbidity and mortality among TB/HIV co- infected patients and also stretches the already challenged infrastructure of the health sector.
