Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported with
United States, 1993-2000
| Slide 23: Estimated HIV Coinfection in
Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993-2000.
This slide provides minimum estimates of HIV coinfection among
persons reported with TB from 1993 through 2000. Since the addition
of HIV 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 9% overall and from 29% to 17%
in persons aged 25 to 44 during this period.
