  1. Tuberculosis incidence in developing countries with high prevalence of HIV infection.

    Article - En anglais


    To study the impact of the HIV epidemic on tuberculosis (TB) incidence in developing countries.


    A simple mathematical model is constructed using figures from published reports to estimate the rise of TB incidence as the HIV epidemic expands.


    Two groups with different risk of developing TB are identified: individuals with dual infection of HIV and Mycobacterium tuberculosis and the rest of the population.

    The model is based on a combination of the incidence and the percentage of TB in these two groups.
