Today, the 29th of November 2010, NHS Evidence - infections launches its 2010 Annual Evidence Update: HIV and TB co-infection – Seeing the whole picture.  The update has been timed to coincide with World AIDS Day on the 1st of December. This is our most comprehensive update so far and includes the key guidance, systematic reviews and reports on HIV that have been published in the last 12 months, along with expert commentaries and useful websites.

Subtopics include:
•   The global overview of TB and HIV co-infection
•   An overview of the BHIVA guidelines for treatment of TB/HIV co-infection
•   Clinical implications of HIV and TB co-infection for GPs
•   An overview of TB and HIV co-infection in the UK
•   Diagnostic tests and guidelines

It is presented online but is also available as a pdf to download and print. This year one of our expert contributors, Dr Anton Pozniak, guests in our associated podcast.

NHS Evidence - infections provides convenient and comprehensive access to the best available evidence on the investigation, prevention, treatment and control of infectious diseases from a clinical perspective. The team are based at the Health Protection Services, Colindale, known until recently as the HPA’s Centre for Infections (CfI).
