Tuberculosis and HIV



The risk of developing tuberculosis (TB) is estimated to be between 12-20 times greater in people living with HIV than among those without HIV infection. In 2012, there were 8.6 million new cases of TB, of which 1.1 million were among people living with HIV. As TB affects the entire community, the Red Cross Red Crescent can make a major contribution to national TB/HIV control efforts through the work of our community-based volunteers and staff. These activities complement the work of formal health systems by delivering care and support beyond health facilities.
