The overall purpose of these guidelines is to help physicians manage adults with tuberculosis (TB)/human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) co-infection. Recommendations for the treatment of TB in adults living with HIV are similar to those in HIV-negative adults. Of note, the term ‘HIV’ refers to HIV-1 throughout these guidelines.
The 2021 interim update to the 2018 BHIVA guidelines for the management of tuberculosis in adults living with HIV was published to ensure that guidance reflects new research data, including data from the World Health Organization, on management of drug-resistant TB. All changes are highlighted.

The guidelines were peer reviewed by Dr Jose Miro, University of Barcelona, Spain, and Professor Graeme Meintjes, University of Cape Town (UCT), South Africa.
We aim to revise these guidelines by 2023. In the meantime, the writing group will confer at least annually to consider new information from high-quality studies and will issue revisions or updates should clinically important and relevant data become available.
