The TB/HIV Working Group is one of the seven working groups of the Stop TB Partnership, comprising a large network of stakeholders from international organizations, donors, academia, and nongovernmental and governmental organizations from a range of different countries. It is committed to reducing the global burden of HIV related TB through effective collaboration between National TB and AIDS Control programmes and other stakeholders, and through the generation of evidence based policy and programme guidance in order to achieve the global TB/HIV targets set for 2010-2015 in the Global Plan to Stop TB. The Global Plan goal is to halve the number of deaths from TB among HIV-positive people, compared with 2004 levels.
