Tuberculosis and HIV
The risk of developing tuberculosis (TB) is estimated to be between 16-27 times greater in people living with HIV than among those without HIV infection. In 2015, there were an estimated 10.4 million cases of tuberculosis disease globally, including 1.2 million [11%] among people living with HIV. Almost 60% [57%] of tuberculosis cases among people living with HIV were not diagnosed or treated, resulting in 390 000 tuberculosis-related deaths among people living with HIV in 201
The WHO HIV and TB Departments and their partners, including community groups, work collaboratively on joint TB/HIV advocacy, policy development and implementation in countries.
