Introduction: Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the major public health and socio-economic issues in the 21st century globally. Assessment of TB treatment outcomes, and monitoring and evaluation of its risk factors in Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) are among the major indicators of the performance of a national TB control program. Thus, the current study was carried to evaluate outcomes and to determine factors affecting outcome in TB patients with HIV. Materials and Methods: Between…

TLDR
TB and HIV co-infection is a reality in pediatric settings in Lubumbashi and high mortality highlights the importance of early management.
Treatment outcome of tuberculosis patients with HIV under Directly Observed Treatment Short Course (DOTS) in Lubumbashi (D.R. Congo).
TLDR
It appears that DOTS have improved treatment success in the Lubumbashi’s Health Zone for five years, however, this study shows clearly that TB-HIV coinfection have a negatively impacts on TB treatment outcome and TB screening should be encouraged in TB patients.

Treatment Outcome of Tuberculosis Patients under Directly Observed Treatment Short Course and Factors Affecting Outcome in Southern Ethiopia: A Five-Year Retrospective Study
TLDR
It appears that DOTS have improved treatment success in the hospital during five years, and regular follow-up of patients with poor treatment outcome and provision of health information on TB treatment to patients from rural area is recommended.
Fifteen-year trend in treatment outcomes among patients with pulmonary smear-positive tuberculosis and its determinants in Arsi Zone, Central Ethiopia
TLDR
DOTS expansion and improving population DOTS coverage in Arsi has led to a significant increase in treatment success and decrease in death and defaulter rates, however, there is a major variation in treatment outcomes across the 25 districts of the zone, so district-specific intervention strategy needs to be considered.

Outcome of tuberculosis patients under directly observed short course treatment in western Ethiopia.
TLDR
The treatment success rate was unsatisfactory in spite of improvement seen over the study period, and continued follow-up of patients, with frequent supportive supervision during the course of treatment, and provision of early detection and follow- up for HIV infection need to be strengthened to achieve an effective treatment outcome.

TLDR
Evidence is provided that TB/HIV co-infection impacts negatively on TB treatment outcome, and there was strong evidence of an association betweenTB/H HIV co- Infection rate among the various age categories.
The impact of HIV syndromes on the treatment of TB cases in Gombe State, Nigeria
TLDR
The cohort analysis looked at the HIV sero-prevalence and the treatment outcomes: cure rate, failure rate, death rate, default rate, and transfer out rate among new smear pulmonary tuberculosis (PTB) patients that are dually infected with HIV and TB as compared to those not duallyinfected.

TLDR
Treatment of HIV-TB co-infection cases needs a better attention in the study area with a continuous of strengthening and monitoring of treatment outcome for successful TB control program.

TLDR
The overall TB treatment success rate was good but fell short of the 85% target, HIV co-infection was associated with a poorer outcome and a more community oriented programme, early identification and treatment of HIV are essential to improve treatment outcome.
