These guidelines have been drawn up to help physicians manage adults with HIV/TB co-infection. We recommend that co-infected patients are managed by a multi-disciplinary team which includes physicians who have expertise in the treatment of both tuberculosis and HIV.
These draft guidelines for TB/HIV infection are posted to the BHIVA website as pdf file. An editorial commentary, plus minor proofing and referencing are still in preparation.
