Information sheet providing general facts and information on PrEP. Document available in English and Spanish.

HIV and Tuberculosis

People with HIV and latent TB infection need treatment for HIV and for latent TB infection as soon as possible to prevent them from developing TB disease. Unfortunately, some people with HIV do not know they are infected with TB. Similarly, some people with TB disease are unaware of their HIV status, although HIV status reporting for people with TB is improving. CDC recommends that anyone who has TB disease, is suspected of having TB disease, or is a contact of a TB patient be tested for HIV.

This Vital Signs highlights the importance of expanding access to SSPs, which provide sterile needles and syringes and ideally offer many other comprehensive services to help improve the health of PWID and their communities, such as treatment for substance use disorder, HIV, and hepatitis testing and linkage to treatment, and safe disposal of used syringes.
