friend (crewman) with HIV & TB
Jun 1, 2001

i had one friend who has got Hiv.now he is suffering with t.b.,can you advise us what to do?

Response from Dr. Feinberg

If you haven't had sex with your friend, I wouldn't worry about the HIV. But everyone working on the ship should have a skin test for TB, and then a chest X-ray if the skin test is positive. It is easy to spread TB, especially in close quarters, and you don't have to be HIV+ to get TB.
