Response from Dr. Young
Thanks for your post from RSA.
I agree that the time is soon to start HIV medications, though it's important to know if your TB has been successfully treated. If so, you could start right in on HIV meds. There are a number of treatment programs in South Africa- I'm unfortunately not aware of the specifics, though I'm sure that your local AIDS service organization can be of assistant to you.
Best of luck, BY
