Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

People living with HIV are 20 to 37 times more likely
to develop TB disease during their lifetimes than
people who are HIV-negative.27 HIV and TB are so
closely connected that the term ‘co-epidemic’ or ‘dual
epidemic’ is often used to describe their relationship,
which is also referred to as TB/HIV (or HIV/TB).
Of the 9.4 million people who became ill with TB in
2009, an estimated 1.0–1.2 million (11–13%) were HIVpositive,
with a best estimate of 1.1 million (12%).28
Of these HIV-positive TB cases, approximately 80%
were in the African Region. Throughout the 1990s
and up to 2004, the HIV epidemic led to a dramatic
increase in the number of TB cases in the African
Region, from less than 200 to more than 350 cases
per 100 000 population. The African Region is thus
the part of the world in which interventions to prevent
TB in HIV-positive people, and to reduce the illness
and mortality associated with HIV infection in HIVpositive
TB patients, are most needed. Within the
African Region, the highest rates of HIV infection
among TB patients are in countries in southern and
eastern Africa, where more than 50% of TB patients
are estimated to be infected with HIV (Figure 17).
An estimated 0.4 million HIV-positive people died
of TB in 2009, equivalent to about one in four of the
deaths that occur among HIV-positive people each year.
In 2004, WHO defined a set of collaborative TB/HIV
activities that are essential to ensure that HIV-positive
TB patients are identified and treated appropriately, and
to prevent TB in HIV-positive people.29 These activities
include establishing mechanisms for collaboration
between TB and HIV programmes; infection control
in health care and congregate settings; HIV testing
of TB patients; CPT and ART for those TB patients
infected with HIV, to reduce illness and mortality; and
intensified TB case-finding among people living with
HIV followed by isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT) for
those without active TB. All HIV-positive TB patients
are considered eligible for ART according to the latest
WHO guidelines on provision of ART.
Currently, testing TB patients for HIV and providing
CPT for HIV-positive TB patients are typically the
responsibility of NTPs. National HIV programmes
