what s at stake
What’s at stake
  • TB and HIV are the leading killers of women of reproductive age (dual burden)
  • TB is usually thought of as a “man’s” disease, so women and children often go undetected
  • Lack of knowledge on TB is putting more people at risk and contributing to stigma
  • TB messaging too technicalfor lay persons
  • Increased numbers of drug resistant cases
  • Lack of political will especially on TB in children
tb hiv collaboration
TB/HIV COLLABORATION
  • Policy documents, referral tools for TB/HIV
  • TB and ART clinics close by
  • Improved TB-HIV care or women/children over the past few years
  • Attention being paid to TB/HIV care for women and children
