Summary

Providing HIV testing and counseling to TB patients can identify persons with HIV infection in order to link them to life-saving therapy. CDC and WHO have developed tools that reinforce standardized operating procedures for providing HIV testing and counseling in TB clinics to help countries plan and implement their programs. The materials provide guidance for advance planning related to national policies, logistics, and implementation procedures, as well as training for health care providers on how to incorporate testing into their practice and how to counsel patients about their HIV test results.
