  1. Le couple tuberculose et infection à VIH.

    Article - En français

    Traduction en anglais : The tuberculosis-HIV partnership.

    Eight million people contract tuberculosis every year, 95% of them in developing countries, and one-third of the world's population is infected with Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

    Annually, tuberculosis causes three million deaths (in Africa 26% of the avoidable deaths).

    The main cause of dissemination is the absence of early diagnosis and insufficient treatment.

    Today, 3% of the new cases of tuberculosis are related to infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), a proposition which is rising rapidly.

    HIV infection does not change the classic rules of treatment: rifampicine, isoniazid, ethambutol and pyrazinamide for 2 months followed by at least 4 more months with a two-drug regimen (rifampicine and isoniazid).
