ABSTRACT
The article discusses a report on HIV data from Kenya's tuberculosis (TB) surveillance system from 2006 to 2009. The Kenya Division of Leprosy, Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (DLTLD) added HIV testing and treatment to its TB surveillance program at the recommendation of the World Health Organization (WHO). HIV testing among patients with TB increased during this period, while HIV infection among TB patients decreased. It was found that HIV-infected TB patients receiving antiretroviral therapy (ART) also increased.
