2004 Surveillance Slides
Estimated HIV Coinfection in Persons Reported
United States, 1993–2003
| Slide 24. Estimated HIV Coinfection in
Persons Reported with TB, United States, 1993–2003.
This slide provides minimum estimates of HIV coinfection among
persons reported with TB from 1993 through 2003, the latest
year with available data. Since the addition of HIV status
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 16% in persons aged 25 to 44 years during this period.
