AIDS and tuberculosis: the situation in Madagascar

Archives de l'Institut Pasteur de Madagascar 62(1):24-5, 1995

Hide Abstract

Because of the known epidemiological links between tuberculosis and HIV infection in developing countries, a systematic study of HIV infection prevalence among tuberculous patients has been conducted since 1989 in some centres of the capital and extended to other towns in 1992. HIV infection prevalence is still low (<200/100,000) with tuberculous patients. This result must incite to continue the surveillance of the ineluctable growth of HIV prevalence and to strengthen the tuberculosis Program in anticipation of subsequent problems.
