Methods: This was a retrospective study. Results: From a total of 1,612 TB cases, 162 cases were positive for HIV. There was a predominance in the age group of 30 to 39 years (39.5%), male gender (61.1… Expand
Adherence to antiretrovirals in people coinfected with the human immunodeficiency virus and tuberculosis1
TLDR
The coinfected patients presented inappropriate adherence to the antiretrovirals, a fact that negatively affects the health conditions of the people living with HIV/tuberculosis coinfection, and a statistically significant correlation was found between the levels of adherence and some sociodemographic and clinical characteristics.

The complexity of TB/HIV coinfection: an analysis of the social and health services context in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
TLDR
Despite the high coverage of nurses and Family Health Strategy in some cities, this did not affect the reduction of the incidence of coinfection, and this model of care holds few prospects for care integration or prioritization of prevention and health promotion actions. Expand
Sociodemographic and health profile of TB/HIV co-infection in Brazil: a systematic review.
TLDR
The sociodemographic and epidemiological profile of people with TB/HIV co-infection has an expected occurrence pattern, which corroborates articles found in the literature, either at national level or by grouping the studies according to region or state. Expand

[Characterization of tuberculosis among HIV/AIDS patients at a referral center in Mato Grosso do Sul].
TLDR
The study revealed the need for early diagnosis of tuberculosis among HIV-positive patients, improvements in medical records and follow-up beyond the recommended duration, because of changes to the clinical evolution of tuberculosis in cases of comorbidity with HIV. Expand
[Tuberculosis in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, in the 1990s].
TLDR
The existing data did not corroborate the hypothesis that AIDS/TB co-infection might contribute to maintaining the high mortality rates, and the greater occurrence of tuberculosis in certain health districts may be associated with population density and unfavorable living conditions. Expand
[Profile of notified tuberculosis cases and factors associated with treatment dropout].
TLDR
The use of drugs, interest in treatment and information about the disease were shown to be independently associated with dropout, and protection factors must form part of the strategies for patient care in order to reduce dropout rates and restore health. Expand
[Abandonment of tuberculosis treatment among patients co-infected with TB/HIV].
TLDR
It was found that, in terms of the patients, that their low socioeconomic condition was the most common factor that led to abandonment, and there is a need to change the practices performed at the health care services. Expand
[Treatment outcome and laboratory confirmation of tuberculosis diagnosis in patients with HIV/AIDS in Recife, Brazil].
TLDR
TB treatment in TB/HIV co-infected patients without etiologic confirmation of TB, at the discretion of experienced physicians in referral centers, did not increase the risk of unfavorable outcomes, and allowed the identification of groups that should be closely monitored due to a greater risk of favorable outcomes.

[HIV/tuberculosis co-infection: a request for a better surveillance].
TLDR
The need for systematic testing for HIV infection in all tuberculosis patients by undertaking confidential HIV tests on admission to a tuberculosis programme is brought out, which would increase the number of cases diagnosed and provide data for better surveillance of the co-infection. Expand
