Antiretroviral Therapy with and without TB coinfection

Jimma Likisa Lenjisa et al. study was hypothesized that tuberculosis co-infection independently increases the risk of mortality in people living with HIV (PLWHs) even if they are on antiretroviral therapy (ART). They have shown that TB co-infection didn’t independently increase mortality provided that patient is on ART. Therefore, beside TB, addressing patient’s nutritional status and intervention to facilitate early presentation to health facilities before they deteriorate functionally and immunologically is mandatory to reduce mortality on ART.
