Tuberculosis infection control in the era of expanding HIV care and treatment

This is an addendum to "WHO Guidelines for the Prevention of Tuberculosis in Health Care Facilities in Resource-Limited Settings, 1999." The goal of this addendum is to help management and staff minimize the risk of TB transmission at facilities in resource-limited settings in which (1) HIV-infected persons receive diagnosis, care, treatment, and/or support, such as voluntary counseling and testing centers, clinics for HIV care including primary health care clinics, antiretroviral therapy (ART) clinics, and support clubs for people living with HIV/AIDS, and (2) There is a high prevalence of HIV infection, both known and undiagnosed, in settings such as prisons, jails, other detention centers, and drug rehabilitation centers
