TB and HIV in Ghana

The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB) epidemics continue to have destructive consequences on populations in Ghana and the Sub-Saharan Africa region as a whole. Tuberculosis (TB) is a major cause of morbidity and mortality among people living with human immunodeficiency virus (PLHIV) in Ghana.  Despite the availability of effective treatment, TB is the leading cause of death in PLHIV, with more than 50% of all HIV deaths in Ghana are attributed to TB.
