Background: Co-infection with tuberculosis and human immunodeficiency virus (TB-HIV) remains a major global health problem, with about 1.1 million new cases of TB in HIV-positive persons reported in 2011; 79% of the reported cases were amongst patients living in Africa. Advanced immune suppression remains the most important risk factor for tuberculosis in those with HIV, but epidemiological and clinical factors have also been identified. We sought to determine the prevalence and factors… 
Prevalence of and risk factors for pulmonary tuberculosis among newly diagnosed HIV-1 infected Nigerian children.
TLDR
In this setting, the burden of PTB was high among newly diagnosed HIV-infected children, and late WHO HIV clinical stage and severe immunosuppression were associated with PTB-HIV co-infection.
Prevalence and associated factors of TB/HIV co-infection among HIV Infected patients in Amhara region, Ethiopia.
TLDR
The prevalence of TB/HIV co-infection in adults on ART in the authors' study was moderately high and having advanced clinical status and presence of risk factors were found to be the predicting factors for co- Infection.
Prevalence of Pulmonary Tuberculosis and Associated Factors Among HIV Positive Patients Attending Antiretroviral Therapy Clinic at Arba Minch General Hospital, Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
From this study, it was revealed that CD4 count, previous history of tuberculosis and smoking were the significant predictors of tuberculosis (p˂0.05) in HIV patients and TB screening among HIV-positive patients should be encouraged.
Prevalence and determinants of Tuberculosis among HIV infected patients in south Ethiopia.
TLDR
Prevalence of tuberculosis was high among tuberculosis positive cases, the proportion of smear negative cases was also high which requires strengthening of TB diagnostic techniques, and tuberculosis was associated with some social demographic characteristics and clinical variables.
Tuberculosis-HIV Co-infection Rate among Smear Positive Pulmonary Tuberculosis Patients and Associated Risk Factors in Southern Ethiopia
TLDR
The government or other partner organizations should work on decreasing the burden of co-infection through designing strategy on preventing HIV transmission in the urban area; increase the monthly income of citizens while enhancing TB-HIV collaborative activity to prevent reactivation of TB.
Tuberculosis/HIV Co-infection among Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) in Gombe State, Nigeria
TLDR
The TB/HIV coinfection was associated with age group 21-40 years was high and fell below 250 cells/mm compared to the mono-infected patients who had CD4 + above 250 cells /mm.
Retrospective Study of HIV and Tuberculosis Co-Infection among HIV Sero-Positive Patients in Kano, Nigeria
TLDR
The results showed that 32 out of 286 HIV sero positive subjects (11.2%) were co-infected with HIV and Tuberculosis in Kano State Nigeria between July and December, 2016.
Tuberculosis, before and after Antiretroviral Therapy among HIV-Infected Children in Nigeria: What Are the Risk Factors?
TLDR
In a cohort of HIV-infected children in Nigeria, a significant reduction in cases of incident TB was seen following a 12-month use of ART, and TB screening should be optimized among children of rural residency, children with sepsis, and those with poor virological response to ART.
Predictors of tuberculosis infection among adults visiting anti-retroviral treatment center at east and west Gojjam, northwest, Ethiopia, 2017
TLDR
It has been concluded that alcohol users, BMI, BMI and bedridden and ambulatory and TB history were predictors for TB-HIV co-infected adults, and taking CPT had protective effect against TB infection.
Prevalence of Mycobacterium Tuberculosis among HIV-positive Patients Attending COCIN Rehabilitation Center in Mangu, Jos, Plateau State, Nigeria
TLDR
It is recommended that further studies be conducted in the entire Plateau State for possible intervention in terms of improve antiretroviral treatment coverage tuberculosis screening, treatment and prevention as a way of reducing active TB among people living with HIV.

TLDR
Preventive actions to reduce the risk of TB in people living with HIV should include an appropriate HAART and treatment for latent TB infection in those with TST≥5 mm.

TLDR
Nearly 20% of patients starting ART in Durban, South Africa, had undiagnosed, culture-positive pulmonary tuberculosis, and despite WHO recommendations, neither cough nor AFB smear were adequately sensitive for screening.
Risk factors for tuberculosis after highly active antiretroviral therapy initiation in the United States and Canada: implications for tuberculosis screening.
TLDR
Screening for active tuberculosis prior to HAART initiation should be targeted to persons with baseline CD4 <200 lymphocytes/mm³ or increased HIV-1 RNA, persons of nonwhite race or Hispanic ethnicity, history of injection drug use, and possibly male sex.
Tuberculosis among HIV-infected patients receiving HAART: long term incidence and risk factors in a South African cohort
TLDR
Incidence of TB continues to decrease during the first 5 years of HAART and so HAART may contribute more to TB control in low-income countries than was previously estimated from short-term follow-up.

TLDR
M. tuberculosis infection according to either test was high, supporting screening and preventive treatment, and children of smear-positive TB cases who accompany their parents to the clinic should be prioritised for immediate screening.

TLDR
The recent declines in morbidity and mortality due to AIDS are attributable to the use of more intensive antiretroviral therapies.
Tuberculosis after one year of combination antiretroviral therapy in Nigeria: a retrospective cohort study.
TLDR
Tuberculosis incidence in patients on ART is driven by poor immunologic and/or virologic response, and optimization of HIV treatment should be prioritized to reduce the burden of TB in this high-risk population.

TLDR
If the benefits of HAART are to be fully realized, then not only is availability crucial but also those individuals who require treatment must be appropriately identified.
