Raising awareness about the TB in rural areas. And printed awareness raising material disseminate in rural areas.
The Global Plan to Stop TB 2006–2015 set out
the scale at which TB/HIV interventions should be
implemented, in the context of the goal of universal
access to treatment by 2010. The major targets were
to test 85% of TB patients for HIV by 2010, and to
sustain this level of testing up to 2015; to provide
95% of HIV-positive TB patients with CPT by 2010;
and to enrol around 300 000 HIV-positive TB patients
on ART by 2010. Ambitious targets for TB screening
among people living with HIV and provision of IPT to
HIV-positive people without active TB disease were
also set. These were to screen close to 100% of
people in HIV care services for TB on a routine basis,
and to enrol approximately 10% of the global total of
people living with HIV on IPT by 2010.

TB-HIV:
TB/HIV activities and management of HIV-associated TB.
People living with HIV are 20 to 37 times more likely
to develop TB disease during their lifetimes than
people who are HIV-negative.27 HIV and TB are so
closely connected that the term ‘co-epidemic’ or ‘dual

which is also referred to as TB/HIV (or HIV/TB).
