National Guidelines for Tuberculosis Infection Control: Second Edition, 2017
Abstract: TB and HIV are overlapping epidemics whereby HIV infection weakens the immune system, hence fueling the TB epidemic among people living with HIV (PLHIV), and on the other hand, TB is the main opportunistic infection and leading cause of deaths among PLHIV. The intertwined relationship between TB and HIV suggests that neither of the epidemics can be effectively controlled without regard to the other. In 2010, the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MOHCDGEC) developed Guidelines for Tuberculosis infection control in health care settings.

The revision of the Guidelines follows evidence that has been generated globally from best practices, guidelines from other countries, WHO guidelines and National TB and HIV guidelines.
