What is the most common life-threatening opportunistic infection affecting people living with HIV or AIDS?

Tuberculosis (TB) kills nearly a quarter of a million people living with HIV each year. It is the number one cause of death among HIV-infected people in Africa, and a leading cause of death in this population worldwide. Three core health-care strategies are critical to reverse the course of HIV/TB:



* Intensified Case Finding (ICF) for active TB
* Isoniazid Preventive Treatment (IPT)
* TB Infection Control (IC).
