Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported with TB
United States, 1993-1999

Slide 16: Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1999
Slide 16: Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-1999.This slide provides minimum estimates of HIV coinfection among persons reported with TB from 1993 through 1999. Since HIV was added to the individual TB case report in 1993, incomplete reporting has provided a challenge to calculating reliable estimates. Results from the cross-matching of TB and AIDS registries have been used to supplement reported HIV test results. For all ages, the estimated percentage of HIV coinfection in persons reported with TB decreased from 15% to 10% overall and from nearly 30% to less than 20% in persons aged 25 to 44 during this period.
