I am HIV positive, should I be worried about TB?

HIV weakens the immune system. All people living with HIV should be screened for TB disease or infection. If you are HIV positive and also test positive for TB, you should get treatment as soon as possible. If you are taking antiretroviral drugs (ARVs), inform your healthcare provider to avoid drug interactions.

Remember, TB is curable, even if you have HIV. So, you should not worry, but be always on the look-out for the first sign of TB
