Abstract

The epidemic of AIDS caused by Human Immunodeficiency virus has been on the rise in India since 1986. The association of HIV infection with tuberculosis leading to a worsening of tuberculosis situation is well known through reports from developed as well as developing countries. India is one of the high prevalent countries for tuberculosis. Hence, it is expected that the increasing epidemic of HIV infection would worsen the tuberculosis situation in India also. At present, under National Tuberculosis Programme, information is not available on diagnosis and management of cases of tuberculosis with HIV infection. The aim of the present document is to sensitize the medicalpersonnel working for tuberculosis, in managing cases oftuberculosis with HIV infection.
