Abstract

A cross-sectional study was carried out in all 43 hospitals in Malawi that register and treat tuberculosis (TB) patients to determine whether there is care and treatment for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) complications in TB patients. Of 1416 adults with TB, 861 (61%) had HIV complications, 627 (44%) patients had received no ward round, and of 1142 patients who had been on anti-tuberculosis treatment for more than 7 days, 294 (26%) had not had a clinical review. Of patients with HIV complications, only 139 (16%) were receiving treatment. There is a lack of regular care and treatment for HIV complications in TB patients in Malawi.
