April 16, 2013
"The regional meeting to scale up collaborative TB/HIV activities in Africa kicked off in Maputo last week with presentations scheduled for 14 African country representatives to share progress and challenges in confronting TB/HIV co-infection in the most highly impacted region of the world," the Center for Global Health Policy's "Science Speaks" blog reports. "Provision of early antiretroviral treatment to individuals co-infected with HIV and TB was the focus of the session," the blog notes, adding, "Later in the morning, a Tanzania Ministry of Health official discussed her country's effort to meet the challenge of TB/HIV co-infection in a nation of 44 million people where HIV prevalence is a little more than five percent, and 38 percent of TB patients live with HIV" (Lubinski, 4/15).
